"Night Train"

Paul Delvaux - 153 x 210 cm - 1947 - (Musee de Toyama (Japan))

In the late 1950s Paul Delvaux produced a number of night scenes in which trains are observed by a little girl seen from behind. These compositions contain nothing overtly surrealistic, yet the clarity of moonlit detail is hallucinatory in effect. Trains had always been a subject of special interest to Delvaux, who never forgot the wonder he felt as a small child at the sight of the first electric trams in Brussels.
