An illuminating guide to Rene Magritte's mysterious paintings(1926-1938).,
This review is from: Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938 (Hardcover)
This marvellous book on the Belgian Surrealist painter Rene Magritte(1898-1967) was published to coincide with the exhibition 'Magritte:The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938' at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Menil Collection, Houston & The Art Institute of Chicago during 2013 & 2014.
After a brief but enlightening introduction there are four essays on Magritte's work in Brussels(1926-1927); Paris(1927-1930); Brussels(1930-1936) & London(1937-1938).
There are 132 high-quality plates of Magritte's paintings some of them little-known and a Chronology(1926-1938).
This is a fascinating guide to Magritte's breakthrough years and his mysterious paintings that made "everyday objects shriek aloud".
