Title: James Ensor. Christ's Entry into Brussels in 1889
Description: Los Angeles, Getty Publications, 2002. 114 pp, 38 color plates, 52 b/w illustrations, soft cover Getty Museum Studies on Art. The brash young artist James Ensor painted "Christ's Entry into Brussels in 1889" during a period of extraordinary artistic and political foment in his native Belgium. Huge in scale, complex in design and execution, and brimming with social commentary, the startling canvas presents a scene filled with clowns, masked figures, and - barely visible amid the swirling crowds - the tiny figure of Christ on a donkey entering the city of Brussels. This text examines the painting in the light of Belgium's rich artistic, social, political and theological debates in the late-19th century, and in the context of James Ensor's exceptional career, in order to decipher some of the painting's messages and meanings.
