Le monde de Paul Delvaux (1944)

In this film, Henri Storck, one of Belgiums most prolific experimental and documentary film makers, evokes the poetic world of the surrealist painter Paul Delvaux (1897-1994), then on the verge of his international breakthrough. The paintings and drawings are at the center of the film makers’s attention. The painter himself is present only through his work.


The work of Delvaux inspired several Belgian documentary, fiction and animation film makers.

At the end of the 1960s, Henri Storck devotes another documentary to the painter: Paul Delvaux ou les femmes défendues.
