Paul Delvaux was a Belgian surrealist painter, identified for his depictions of feminine nudes. Born in Antheit within the province of Liège, Delvaux attended the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Brussles, finding out structure then portray below painter, muralist, and sculptor Fixed Montald.
Throughout the early 1920s, he was influenced by Expressionist and Surrealist artists James Ensor and Gustave de Smet. In 1936, Delvaux held an exhibition on the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels with René Magritte, a fellow member of the Belgian group Les Compagnons de l’Artwork.
Paul Delvaux liked trains and stations which have been included in a lot of his work.
He was, maybe, a loner and that loneliness transmits this works. In these stations all the time lacking a kiss or a goodbye, a hug, a tear or a handkerchief. ‘Loneliness’ depicts the solitude of a lady who doesn’t appear to anticipate anybody or to go anyplace; she is simply strolling alongside the platform and the moon illuminating the scene as if it have been day.
