About the Artist - E. L. T. Mesens

Édouard Léon Théodore Mesens (1903-1971) was a Belgian artist, poet, and curator known for his contributions to Surrealism. He played a pivotal role in the Surrealist movement, particularly in Brussels. Mesens was a close friend and collaborator of René Magritte and André Breton.


In the 1920s, Mesens was instrumental in organizing Surrealist exhibitions and events, including the iconic "La Soirée du Rat Mort" (The Evening of the Dead Rat), which featured bizarre performances and marked Surrealism's influence on Belgian art and culture.


Mesens was also a prominent figure in the world of Dadaism and served as the editor of various Surrealist publications. Later in life, he turned to collage and assemblage art, creating intriguing works that often combined disparate elements.


His enduring influence on Surrealism and his commitment to pushing artistic boundaries make E. L. T. Mesens a significant figure in 20th-century art history.
