Description

Paul Delvaux (1897-1994) developed a magisterial body of work inspired by the world of trains. Integrated into the breathtaking scenography of Train World, the surrealist master’s paintings echo the unique atmosphere of the museum.

During this exhibition, we invite you to experience this magical resonance and discover the work of this man passionate about trains and stations. The exhibition layout presents the development of the painter’s work: from the drawings, watercolours and paintings of the 1920s to the monumental works of the 1970s, while also including some personal belongings of the artist. As a supreme distinction, the painter was appointed honorary stationmaster of Louvain-la-Neuve in 1984.
