James (art) Ensor

The catalogue of the first retrospective of James Ensor, held in 2008 in Musée d’Orsay, presents a large part of the oeuvre of the Belgium painter born in 1860. For the introduction of the book, we proposed to reproduce all exhibited artworks in chronological order and with the same scale from one image to another. This visual synthesis offers an overview and allows to visualize the large disparity and the evolution of formats in the artist’s work. The section printed on pink paper distinguishes the introductory pages of the rest of the book presenting the catalogue. This project was an opportunity to use a first condensed version of typographic character « le Plus », named « le Plus Grand».
