From 1941 to 1947, the famous painter René Magritte was disillusioned by the German occupation in
France and decided he could use his work to show the « brightside of life » by painting more positive and inspired pieces. At that time, he was mainly influenced by Renoir’s works – and a few others impressionists – and the exhibition is putting in relation these two genious of paintings works and how they were related despite quite different universes.
About 60 paintings and 40 drawings made by Magritte are highlighted in this special exhibition and connected with the work of those from whom he was inspired, but also this who were inspired by this « Renoir period ».
