Discovering René Magritte

Renée Magritte

Today our speaking corner was focused on the Belgian painter, René Magritte (1898-1967). We analysed several paintings, all of them amazing and challenging. By his oeuvre, this leading figure of European’s surrealism and magic realism plays with pre-established perceptions of reality. He was a thought-provoker and depicted ordinary objects and sceneries in an unusual context. His images left a great influence on pop art.
