Looking at Magritte III
Exhibition at the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
"This completely new exhibition reinterprets the entire work of the artist in the light of five "figures" to which Magritte made constant reference in his work: fire, shadows, curtains, words and the fragmented body. Through an approach based on these themes, the exhibition reveals the artist's thinking on questions of resemblance and realism, and highlights his works dealing with the deceptive representations of the world. The exhibition brings together Magritte's paintings with antique images, illustrating mythological narratives of the invention and definition of painting."
