Magritte Museum, finally

“The term ‘composition’ implies a possible ‘decomposition’ of a painting by means, for example of analysis… In so far as my paintings have validity, they do not lend themselves to analysis.”

“Liberty is the possibility of being and not the obligation to be.”

These are only two of the many quotes of Magritte shown all along the exhibition. All I heard about the exhibition is true: it is very well organised, very complete – as far as I can judge – and very insightful. It is interesting to see the various influences of cubism and dadaism in Magrittes paintings before he developed his very own style. Most of his known paintings aren’t overly elaborated, they are a bit plakativ but still animated. Difficult to describe – best to be seen!
