Delvaux

Delvaux, Laurent, 1695-1778, Flemish sculptor. After studying in Rome, Delvaux developed a style that combined French neoclassic and Italian baroque elements. Ornate in the extreme, his works express a marked coldness. Delvaux's Hercules is in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels.
Delvaux, Paul, 1897-1994, Belgian painter. Delvaux, influenced by Magritte and Chirico, created meticulous surreal compositions based on Renaissance ideas of perspective and peopled with self-absorbed somnambulists. Often containing an ironic eroticism, Delvaux's visionary paintings allude to the double standards of Victorian sexual morality. His Venus Asleep (1944) is in the Tate Gallery, London.
