Recognised as the painter of women and skeletons, Delvaux added another string to his bow by also becoming the painter of trains and stations. Fascinated by the great metal monsters of his childhood, spitting fire and hissing steam, Delvaux strove to reproduce these mysterious locomotives in all their detail. This book conjures up that journey through a number of stunning, illustrated comparisons, which also draw on photographs and drawings to reveal the man's passion for the world of the railwaymen, a community that he joined by being named the chef de gare d'honneur, or "Honorary Stationmaster" at Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve. This book offers an uncharted exploration to the heart of his moonlit railway works. The destination of Delvaux's trains is in the gift of those who behold them. Each work is an invitation to escape to dreamlike regions, where one train may hide another.
