René Magritte

Beyond painting

Patricia Allmer

Published by Manchester University Press

  • First Anglophone monograph wholly dedicated to an exposition and analysis of Magritte's art, and offers close readings of specific images Pays attention to neglected aspects of Magritte's work, discussing the significance of cabinets of curiosities and encyclopaedias, trompe l'oeil, framing and forgeries Demonstrates that, far from being the surrealist artist familiar from book-covers, uncertainty, incoherence and negation lie at the core of Magritte's oeuvre Key contribution to research on Magritte
