Magritte-Renoir at the Musée de l'Orangerie

The LP Art teams have installed before the reopening of the museums, effective May 19, the exhibition entitled "Surrealism in the Sun" which will run until July 19 at the Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris.
It brings together some sixty paintings and forty drawings in which Magritte's paintings are compared with the masterpieces of Auguste Renoir that inspired him.
Magritte's "Renoir Period" was for him the driving force behind an in-depth reform of Surrealism and it was to this end that he addressed his "Manifesto for a Surrealism in the Sun" to André Breton in October 1946, a project that was however rejected by the latter.
