ensor en de grote maskerade
Marije’s daughter at the James Ensor House in Oostende Belgium.
The modern symbolist James Ensor (1860–1949) from the Flemish coastal town of Ostend is famous for his paintings of masks, skeletons and other strange figures. What is less well known is that he also composed music. Marije Tolman has combined these two disciplines in a wistful picture book, which is part of a successful series of illustrated art books published by Leopold and the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. In Ensor, de grote maskerade, the artist goes on a fantastic journey, starting and ending by his beloved sea.
