Happy birthday to Belgian painter, printmaker, and known curmudgeon James Ensor (1860–1949). The famously reclusive artist painted “Self-Portrait with Masks” when he was seventy-seven years old and at the height of his fame. He frequently used masks in his satires of Belgian society, religion, and politics, and in this small painting he pokes fun at himself and his artistic status.
