Magritte In 400 Images
The legacy of the world-famous surrealist is summarised by Magritte expert Julie Waseige, who made a selection of no less than 400 images from an oeuvre of thousands of artworks. Naturally the book shows his most important and well-known pieces, but it also contains a number of less-known works, such as gouaches, drawings, sculptures, and even painted bottles. In short, a surprising perspective on Magritte that will charm aficionados and amateurs alike. Interspersed with many archival photographs, the book is divided into seven chapters and follows a chronological order, from his posters and abstract experiments in the 1920s to the masterworks of the 1950s and ’60s.
