When I was in High School, I came upon—by way of Time Magazine, of all things—the paintings of Paul Delvaux.
Living, as I did, close to a rail yard, I was first of all struck by the serenity and strangeness of his railway studies.
I loved how the factually forbidding, leaden and noisy vehicles became part of streetscapes in Delvaux’s eyes.
That mysteriousness of the environment became augmented by a continuity of lovely women.
Delvaux’s is a world with an inspiration superseding racing about.
