Magritte, Rene Biography


Was a Belgian Surrealist painter who was trained in Brussels and traveled in France, Britain, Germany and Holland. Rene Magritte lived near Paris and came into contact with the French Surrealist movement, although he painted some Impressionist-style pictures during World War 2. Rene Magritte later lived in Brussels and painted murals for Belgian public buildings. His pale and dryly painted works have a dream-like clarity, with, frequently, an unexpected wittiness. They often have nude women, sometimes accompanied by men in bowler hats, and similar incongruities.
