Outing – Paul Delvaux at Watermael-Boitsfort – by bike

Activity: 

We will be starting out from Watermael-Boitsfort station and following the 14km trail described in the folder available from the town hall, and you can request a PDF version by email.  We will see the two dwellings where Paul Delvaux resided from 1950 to 1984, the Saint Hubert church where he married Tam, the town hall (civil marriage), the houses and perspectives that are found in his paintings.

The painter loved to walk in the forest of Soignes and follow the railway tracks, and we will do the same. A highly interesting document is chronicle no. 40 published by Hisciwab (History and Sciences at WB) in September 2017 to mark 120 years since his birth, it can be bought for €10 (with its Dutch translation).
