René Magritte

Pioneering Surrealism

Pioneering Surrealist René Magritte(1898 – 1967) masterfully mixed wit with illusion. Initially designing wallpaper, posters and advertisements, Magritte utimately received a gallery contract that enabled him to paint full time. He surmounted early, scathing criticism of his work eventually winning over critics and profoundly impacting the art world.
