Paul Delvaux (1897 – 1994).
Belgian painter, famous for his surrealist paintings of female nudes.
The paintings Delvaux became famous for usually feature numbers of nude women who stare as if hypnotized, gesturing mysteriously, sometimes reclining incongruously in a train station or wandering through classical buildings.
