They Might Be Giants – Meet James Ensor (1994)

James Sidney Edouard, Baron Ensor (13 April 1860 – 19 November 1949) was a Belgian painter and printmaker, an important influence on expressionism and surrealism who lived in Ostend for almost his entire life. He was associated with the artistic group Les XX.

Ensor has been paid homage by contemporary painters and artists in other media: he is the subject of a song, “Meet James Ensor”, recorded in 1994 by the alternative rock duo They Might Be Giants.
