This is from one of those mass market art book series, Crown Art Library. I’m a sucker for these short, generalized overviews of artists and their work. Unfortunately, the writing in this one feels like a bad translation. Only in the last few pages do we get concrete details about Ensor’s life, but, as always, the writing is second banana to the art itself. The book is filled with high quality images of Ensor’s work which make it worth having.
