Project Description

René François Ghislain Magritte (1898-1967), Belgian surrealist painter, prime exponent of the style of painting known as magic realism. Born in Lessines, Magritte had already begun to paint in his own distinct style by the time of his first solo exhibition in 1927. He is noted for works that contain an extraordinary juxtaposition of ordinary objects or an unusual context that gives new meaning to familiar things.
