Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Available for the first time in an English translation, this selection of Rene Magritte's writings gives non-Francophone readers the chance to encounter the many incarnations of the renowned Belgian painter--the artist, the man, the aspiring noirist, the fire-breathing theorist--in his own words. Through whimsical personal letters, biting apologia, appreciations of fellow artists, pugnacious interviews, farcical film scripts, prose poems, manifestos, and much more, a new Magritte emerges: part Surrealist, part literalist, part celebrity, part rascal.While this book is sure to appeal to admirers of Magritte's art and those who are curious about his personal life, there is also much to delight readers interested in the history and theory of art, philosophy and politics, as well as lovers of creativity and the inner workings of a probing, inquisitive mind unrestricted by genre, medium, or fashion.
