René MAGRITTE (1898 – 1967)

René François Ghislain Magritte, born November 21, 1898 in Lessines, Hainaut, Belgium and he died in Schaerbeek (near Brussels) on August 15, 1967. He was Belgian surrealist painter.

Painter of metaphysics and the surreal, Magritte treated the obvious with a corrosive humor, a way of undermining the foundation of things and the spirit of seriousness. He slipped between things and their representation, images and words. Instead of inventing techniques, he preferred to get to the bottom of things, using paint which becomes the instrument of knowledge inseparable from mystery. “Magritte is a great painter, Magritte is not a painter,” wrote Jean Émile Louis Scutenaire in 1947.
