Last Chance to See – James Ensor at the Royal Academy

Not the most famous European artists, but I fell in love with his skeletons warming themselves by a fire a long time ago. Fantastically varied and always strange, even in his self portraits. Knowing he was inspired by his grandmother’s curiosity shop makes so much sense. When Einstein was leaving Europe he stopped off to meet Ensor. He’s that important!
