L'art prend le metro - art takes the tube. The artist Paul Delvaux. The tube station: Bourse.
The second piece of art at the Bourse tube station is probably amongst the very well known underground surrealist paintings. Painted by surrealist painter Paul Delvaux in 1980, the painting - which stretches all along (13m long) the upper wall of the tube station - portrays old trams.
Part nostalgia, part surrealism the painting is beautiful. Trains are a constant subject of interest in Paul Delvaux' paintings, who never forgot the wonder of the first electric trams in Brussels.
