Belgian Surrealist René François Ghislain Magritte was born 21 November 1898 and died 15 August 1967.
He became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images that fall under the umbrella of surrealism. His work challenges observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality.
He may have carved his place in art history as a master of mind-bending, advertising-influenced imagery at the intersection of aesthetics and philosophy, but he also had a little-known early commercial career. Young Magritte made rent by working as a draughtsman at a wallpaper factory and was a poster advertisement designer until 1926, when a contract with Galerie 'Le Centaure' in Brussels made it possible for him to paint full-time.
During this short period were also produced 40 sheet music covers like "La Marche des Snobs", "Le tango des Aveux", "Nuits d'Asie", "Arlita", "Primevère"...
