René Magritte: Life Line


SKIRA René Magritte: Life Line Edited by Xavier Canonne, Julie Waseige, Guido Comis.Based on Magritte's own vision of his artistic lineage, Life Line traces the "disturbing poetic effect" of his paintings
In 1938, René Magritte delivered a lecture entitled “La Ligne de vie” (“The Life Line”) in Antwerp—one of the rare occasions in which the artist talked about his work in public. During the hour-long lecture, he illustrated, with the aid of slides, the evolution of his work, and revealed the techniques that had allowed him to create images characterized by what he called a “disturbing poetic effect.”
Following the thread laid out by Magritte in that lecture, this catalog retraces the artist’s career from its beginnings, featuring over 90 of his works alongside others by artists such as Giorgio de Chirico and Max Ernst, whom Magritte named as among his influences during his early years.
