Magritte: Reflections of Another World
Part of The Baker Museum Lecture Series
Elliott King, Associate Professor of Art History, Washington and Lee University
René Magritte admitted that it was not his intention “to make anything comprehensible.” Duly, he shrouded his art in mysteries that continue to fascinate — and even frustrate — audiences the world over. In this lecture, guest curator Dr. Elliott King aims to shed light onto the enduring enigma of Magritte, from Surrealism to wartime Impressionism and his relevance to later artists.
This lecture accompanies the exhibition, Magritte: Reflections of Another World.
