The Belgian surrealist artist Rene Magritte redefined the way we think about art. Famous for his men in bowler hats, Magritte's witty and provocative work inspired generations of later artists, from Andy Warhol to Jasper Johns. In this illuminating new biography, Patricia Allmer radically repositions Magritte's work in relation to its historical and cultural circumstances. Allmer explores the significant influence of events and experiences in Magritte's early childhood and youth, recorded in his letters and essays: his memories of visiting fairs and circuses; of magical shows and performances; of the cinema; and in particular his first encounter with his future partner, Georgette, on a carousel. Allmer's analyses of these events and their influence on both well-known and less familiar images give new insights into Magritte's art. The book will appeal to those who wish to know more about Magritte's life and work, as well as the wide audience for Surrealism.
