This is the first exhibition to show a chapter of Magritte’s work that is still largely unknown. It allows us to compare Magritte’s works with those of Auguste Renoir, who inspired him.The exhibition brings together some sixty paintings and forty drawings. It opens with some works from the late 1930s in which Magritte expresses the imminence of war and disaster. The paintings from Magritte’s “Renoir” period are compared with masterpieces by Renoir, contemporary paintings by Picabia and other pieces that allow us to sketch out a posterity for this little-known production.Exhibition organized by the Orsay and Orangery museums, Paris with the exceptional collaboration of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.
