Abstract:

In 'René Magritte: The Revealing Image', a comprehensive catalog of Magritte's photography and film, we see Magritte with his parents and brothers, as a newly married man with his wife Georgette and with his contemporaries in the Brussels Surrealist group. Spontaneous snapshots are complemented by posed scenes, including improvised tableaus with his fellow artists, parodies of famous movies, portraits of Magritte at his easel and staged photographs that served as models for his paintings. Fans of Magritte's iconic paintings will find much to discover here; images where the artist and his friends hide their faces or turn away from the camera particularly resonate with his investigation of the "hidden visible".
