HE ONCE SAID “YOUTHFUL IMPRESSIONS, FIXED ONCE AND FOR ALL IN THE MIND, INFLUENCE YOU ALL YOUR LIFE.” DESPITE CLAIMING TO FIND THE FOUNDER OF PSYCHOANALYIS’S IDEAS UNIMPORTANT, DELVAUX’S PAINTINGS ARE OFTEN DESCRIBED AS VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF FREUDIAN DREAMS. HERE, AS HE OFTEN DOES, THE IMAGE IS REPLETE WITH NUDES AND EROTIC MOTIFS.

Delvaux”, signed on reverse in black ink, on an offset lithograph after his 1943 painting La Dame a la Fleur, 7.5 x 4.75, museum-quality matting and framed in gold to an overall size of 11 x 8, by the Belgian painter noted for his dream-like scenes of women, classical architecture, trains and train stations, and skeletons, often in combination.
