RENÉ MAGRITTE. THE TREACHERY OF IMAGES

The Schirn Museum Frankfurt dedicates the first major exhibition of 2017 to the magician of enigmatic paintings, René Magritte

René Magritte, the magi­cian of enig­matic images, is one of the key figures of the art of the 20th century. The SCHIRN is devoting a solo show to the great Belgian surre­alist that high­lights his rela­tion­ship to the philos­ophy of his day. Magritte did not see himself as an artist, but rather as a thinking person, who conveyed his thoughts through painting. His entire life he sought to find a form of expres­sion equal to that of language. His curiosity and affinity with great contem­po­rary philoso­phers such as Michael Foucault resulted in a remark­able oeuvre, which is shown in a new light through over 70 works.

Orga­nized in coop­er­a­tion with the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d’art moderne, Paris, the exhi­bi­tion illu­mi­nates the key visual images that are concerned with the myth of inven­tion and the defi­n­i­tion of painting – and demon­strate the painter’s suspi­cion of simple answers and simple realism. On display are master­pieces from impor­tant inter­na­tional museums and collec­tions including Musée Magritte in Brus­sels, the Kunst­mu­seum Bern, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Menil Collec­tion in Houston, the Tate in London, the Metro­pol­itan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and the National Gallery of Art in Wash­ington D.C.

10 Most Controversial Pieces of Art

Serving as a mirror held up to the face of the world, one of the primary functions of art is to take a closer look at nature and ourselves, reflecting a hard kernel of truth that “washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life”, as Picasso said. Whether it’s been the haunting smile of da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans, which ushered in fifteen minutes of fame for everything, art has managed to shock the public on many occasions, either from a work that has been particularly revelatory and thought provoking or one that seemed to exist for the mere sake of pomp and indulgence.
