Between Street and Mirror focused on the most creative and prolific period of the innovative draftsman James Ensor. Between 1880 and 1895 the artist experimented with a wide range of subjects and techniques, notably etching and large-scale drawing. Ensor’s creative production bridges the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and resists an easy fit into any single movement or group.
The Drawing Center’s exhibition of over 90 drawings, curated by Robert Hoozee and Catherine de Zegher, covered the stylistic evolution of Ensor’s practice, from an early Impressionist style to the highly personal and grotesque nature of the later works.
