Meet James Ensor

Born on this day (in 1860) was James Ensor, artist and famous Belgian (a surprisingly large category). He lived virtually all his life in Ostend and explored his various obsessions, religious and otherwise, in some very strange paintings, though the strangeness faded away as he became older and more successful.
