The photographs and films of René Magritte came to light in the mid-1970s, more than a decade after the Surrealist painter’s death. The discovery of these gem-like treasures has led to a deeper understanding of the close relationship Magritte maintained with photography. They reveal how he used these tools to explore the bounds of his imagination, while providing rare access to an informal side of the artist and those with whom he surrounded himself. These images, which he often executed or collaborated with others to produce, contribute to our overall understanding of this intrepid artist, and provide key visual insight into Magritte’s relationship with the medium, and its role within his greater oeuvre.
