Brussels’ Magritte Musem: Covered with a Tarp Painting During Restoration Work 2008-2009
In the building of the Royal Museums for Fine Arts of Belgium, visitors will be able to discover the world’s largest collection of René Magritte’s works. The collection is a perfect proof of René Magritte’s oeuvre and covers all the periods from his life. The works on display, among which his most important masterpieces, are mainly from the legacies of Irene Scutenaire-Hamoir and Georgette Magritte and from purchases made by the Royal Museums for Fine Arts of Belgium, completed with works on loan from private persons.
Besides his paintings, oils on canvas, gouaches, drawings, sculptures and painted objects as well as advertising posters, musical scores, vintage photographs and films produced by the artist are exposed.
