Resumen del libro

This book explores James Ensors writings, ideas and works in greater depth than they have hitherto enjoyed in art-historical scholarship.
In the course of the twentieth century, under the influence of the increasing success of Modernism, a misleading image of James Ensor emerged. One might even say that Ensor was confined within a modernist 'straitjacket. In order to understand the artists motivations, this book follows the advice given to the art critic André De Ridder by Ensor himself in 1930: 'I recommend you re-read Les Écrits de James Ensor, where I explain my research and defend my ideas. Ensors writings can roughly be divided into two categories - his letters and 'les écrits, encompassing his journalistic work, satirical exhibition reviews, comical speeches, words of thanks and praise, and open letters in brochures.
The analysis of Ensors writings is no small task, for he gave little attention to structure and coherence, and employed a complex 'wondermiraclelikefulistic language - archaisms, neologisms, staggering vitriolic rants, hyperboles, from which the essence of his personal views and beliefs is often difficult to distill. Nevertheless, his writings are a crucial source of knowledge on his opinions on Christian faith, rationality, hypocrisy, the dangers of an emerging Flemish nationalism, animal cruelty, the destruction of natural beauty and ancient monuments, and a number of other topics. Ensor believed art ought to be a source of 'ravishment for both the viewer and the artist, and continually defended the right of the latter to create an incoherent oeuvre, experimenting with ever new and diverse 'manières, styles, subjects, techniques and genres. This book explores the artists writings, ideas and works in greater depth than they have hitherto enjoyed in art-historical scholarship.
