Belgian Paul Delvaux is my favorite surrealist painter. His dreamlike
paintings of his female subjects are quite natural and enchanting. I
wish I could have dreams like his artwork depicts. I found three
archives of his work from
Paintings Art In The Picture, Anarkasis
and IWeb. My
favorite for the moment is Femme Au Mirror.
Femme Au Mirror (1934)
The Great Sirens is from the Met's Timeline of Art History.
The Great Sirens (1947)
It's interesting how his backgrounds line up slightly off center to mitigate
the otherwise static settings.
