René Magritte discovered futurism in 1919. He painted his first surrealist canvas in 1925. His works often played on the gap between an object and its representation. He participated in the Belgian surrealist activities, then, installed near Paris from 1927 to 1930, in those of the French group. With an impersonal figurative technique, as thoughtful as attentive to visionary suggestions, he proceeded to a questioning of the relationships between things. Between their reality, their image, their conceptual content, the words designating this confrontation opened the doors of imaginary. Magritte's work was marked by his mother's suicide by drowning when he was fourteen. Elements of this event was often found in his paintings.
