The exhibition, which will start next 21st November in Milan, shows as protagonist one of the most eclectic personages in the panorama of last century’s art. One hundred artworks on view, among collages and paintings, which retrace the artistic itinerary of Magritte from the first futurist paintings to 50s’ advertising campaigns.

The whole exposition revolves just around one theme: the nature. The continuous presence of nature in the painter’s artworks, its importance, and the peculiar way to develop this theme. Magritte shows his surrealist fingerprint by using nature as a fragment of reality to reach a surreal world.

Managed by Michel Draguet, the exhibition underlines the innovative spirit of this artist towards the theme of nature. No more still life paintings, scenes of everyday life or landscapes on the river bank, but clouds, seas, fruits and flowers which come to life through the artist’s hands.

Intense and stirring moments, faces covered by sheets, human outlines as keyholes on the world, here it is the real Magritte of the exhibition.

The event, expressly studied to draw the attention of Magritte’s lovers, is in the pursuit of a surrealist dimension, in which the artist foresees the direction that society of that time was taking. Magritte is a modern painter, who looks out for the time which is changing and for the social and artistic importance of these changes.

In addition, this artist was one of the first painters who understood the importance of advertising, and mindful of this, he succeeded in amalgamate painting and advertising, also to promote himself.

Therefore the exhibition augurs well, and then the wonderful scenery of Palazzo Reale represents on its own a good reason to visit the exhibition.
