René Magritte, gouache, 1956

True to his style, the Belgian painter René Magritte is worldwide one of the most important representatives of surrealism. His work is communicative, his literary sense of humour plays with an image and he raises doubts and questions with the viewer. In many materials the artist masters the ironic contradictions and metamorphoses, where the illusion is increased by a poetic title.

‘Une partie de plaisir’ puts the art lover between painting and poetry. Magritte strips the subject of its identity and becomes the perpetrator of the riddle that shakes the reality. Within his many themes, ‘the masked apple’ and ‘the light’ belong to one of the top favourites for collectors.
