In 1963, when the Paris – Brussels - Amsterdam line was fully electrified, the NMBS/SNCB and the SNCF put into service a new generation of international carriages operating under the Trans Europ Express (TEE) label. In order to highlight Belgium’s artistic talent, the NMBS/SNCB commissioned a set of four paintings from ten Belgian painters. These works decorated the 1st class carriages of the Belgian railways.
Among the designated artists, Paul Delvaux, an emblematic painter of stations and trains, designed four original works. Since September 2019, these four works have been exhibited at Train World. Alongside this famous painter, nine other painters contributed to the decoration of the famous TEE of the time, including René Guiette, Maurice Boel or Jules Lismonde.
