              The book presents about seventy paintings, gouaches and drawings by Rene Magritte and includes interesting studies by international researchers such as Julie Waseige and Xavier Canonne both on the artist's poetic and art evolution. The volume's starting point is Magritte's lectur...e at the Royal Musee des Beaux-Arts in Antwerp held on 20 November 1938, today known as `La Ligne de vie'. It was through a series of examples (that) on that occasion Magritte outlined the genesis of his art, endeavoring to define the thirteen years of surrealist painting. Although the visible manifestations of the World's Mystery he continuously offers to us, he has anyhow refused to explain his works. This conference was one of the rare occasions in which the artist opened up to the public, clarifying his beginnings and the evolution of his painting until 1938, the period now recognized as the most representative of his entire career. The book includes Magritte's masterpieces before and after this date, when its diffusion and notoriety became international. It contains his most famous paintings but also documents, book catalogs, musical partitions and many photographs by Rene Magritte himself and his fellow artists, along with screenshots of his films so to give a wide overview on his entire artistic experience.

              In this richly illustrated book, Xavier Canonne, director of the Museum of Photography in Charleroi, dives into Rene Magritte's photo and film archive, revealing a lesser-known side of the surrealist master. Discovered in the 1970s, more than ten years after the artist's death, t...his collection gives us access to a family album, an informal Magritte, from his childhood to the last years of his life. We see Magritte with his parents and brothers, as a newly married man with his wife Georgette, and with his contemporaries in the Brussels Surrealist group. Spontaneous snapshots are complemented by posed scenes, including improvised tableaux with his fellow artists, parodies of famous movies consciously arranged with Georgette, portraits of Magritte at his easel at home, and staged photographs as models for his paintings. Images where the artist and his friends hide their faces or turn away from the camera particularly resonate with his paintings and his investigation of the 'hidden visible'. While other Surrealists such as Man Ray and Raoul Ubac made photography an essential part of their work, Magritte remained a true painter. Yet this book demonstrates that his photographs and home movies are so pervaded with his spirit that they are inseparable from his oeuvre of paintings.

              The Subversion of Images: Notes Illustrated with Nineteen Photographs by the Author (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This classic surrealist photobook pioneered the imagery of the domestic uncanny First edited and published by Marcel Marien in 1968 in a limited edition of 230 copies, half a year after Paul Noug 's death, The Subversion of Images is a miniature classic in both the photobook and ...surrealist canons. It collects Noug 's notes and photographs from 1929-30 to form a guidebook to the surrealist image. Noug here outlines his conception of the object and the surrealist approach to it, while also offering an accompaniment to the visual work of his colleague, Ren Magritte, whose paintings he sometimes titled. How might a tangle of string elicit terror? How might the suppression of an object move one to sentimentality? What is the effect of a pair of gloves on a loaf of sliced bread? Noug 's accompanying photographs explore these notions, and feature a number of his Belgian surrealist colleagues. This translation is presented as a facsimile of the original edition, with an afterword by Xavier Canonne, director of the Mus e de la Photographie. A biochemist by trade, Paul Noug (1895-1967) was a leading light of Belgian surrealism and its primary theorist, as well as a decisive influence on such Lettrists and Situationists as Guy Debord and Gil J. Wolman, who would take inspiration from his conception of plagiarism for what would come to be termed d tournement. Noug steered the Brussels surrealist group toward a more rational approach to visual and verbal language that discarded the Parisian surrealists' proclivity for irrationality and occultism.
