Paris is in full swing as we all take to the city for Fashion Week. We want to get you into the mood and get inspired with some of our favourite hidden gems.
René Magritte at the Centre Pompidou, Paris until the 23rd January 2017.
René Magritte was an internationally acclaimed surrealist artist of all time, yet it was not until his 50s, when he was finally able to reach some form of fame and recognition for his work. Rene Magritte described his paintings saying,
“My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, ‘What does that mean?’ It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing, it is unknowable.”
Pop, minimalism, conceptual art and many more owe the artist a considerable debt for this trademark – a fact he would no doubt be delighted by.
