Heads - masked, transformed

James Ensor, Le Tambour-Major, ca. 1925-29, Privatsammlung, Foto: Lea Gryze
The human face: it reflects the personality, reveals emotions and states of mind. But it also reveals things that people prefer to hide. That is why it has always been an important theme in art. Many paintings, graphics and sculptures are dedicated to the tension between showing, masking and transforming. The exhibition presents works from a private collection that has long pursued this thematic focus. It shows works from the 12th century to the present.
