This is Magritte

Belgian artist René Magritte's biography is a key element of his art. His life is infused with bizarre moments — a surreal journey oscillating between fact and fiction that he always conducted as the straight-faced, bowler-hatted man.

The events of Magritte's childhood played an important part in creating the surrealist, but it was his pop culture borrowings from crime fiction, advertising, and postcards that made his work instantly recognizable.

The often-unreliable nature of Magritte's accounts of his own life has transformed his public image into a kind of fictional character. He shaped his own life story to be its own surreal work of art.

This is Magritte recounts the tale using engaging text, the artist's own work, photos, and richly detailed illustrations.
