Please see the below PDF Media Kit for René Magritte: The Revealing Image, Photos and Films, 19 August – 19 November 2017.
René Magritte: The Revealing Image, Photos and Films will feature 130 original photographs and eight films by renowned Belgian Surrealist, Rene Magritte. One of the signature Western artists of the 20th Century, Magritte used photography and film as exemplars for paintings and commercial work. The works were discovered in the mid-1970s, more than 10 years after the artist’s death, and are pervaded by the spirit of Magritte, making them inseparable from his famous paintings. The majority of these works have never been exhibited outside Europe, and premiere exclusively at the newly-renovated Latrobe Regional Gallery, Morwell, Victoria, Australia.
