Quote of the Day: James Ensor

“In our house, all you hear is groaning.”

James Ensor

The Chicago venue of the Getty co-organized James Ensor show includes selections from a newly discovered group of 350 of the artist’s letters. They describe Ensor’s home life, involving much blood, a straitjacket, and a “frighteningly large” tapeworm.
