Musée Magritte Museum

musée magritte museum – From the quotidian to the extraordinary.

Located in the heart of Brussels, the Magritte Museum presents an outstanding collection of works by the Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte. This rich collection of over 200 works is the largest in the world.

Multidisciplinary, the museum consists of paintings (Empire of Light, The Man from the Sea, The Domain of Arnheim), gouaches, drawings, sculptures and painted objects, but also billboards, music scores, old photographs and films directed by Magritte himself.

In the late twenties, René Magritte, one of a small group of Brussels iconoclasts, started to make a name for himself with his deep questioning of traditional pictorial language, rapidly becoming a main protagonist of the Surrealist movement, in Belgium and abroad.

The setting up of this museum, containing works belonging to the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium or from deposits of private collectors and public institutions, was made possible by the skills sponsorship of the French and Belgian subsidiaries of GDF SUEZ and the support of the Magritte Foundation.
