René Magritte

       René François Ghislain Magritte (November 21, 1898 – August 15, 1967) was a Surrealist artist, born in Lessines, Belgium. In 1912, Magritte’s mother committed suicide by drowning herself in the river Sambre. He studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels for two years until 1918. During this period he first met Georgette Berger, whom he married in 1922. Magritte produced his first surrealist painting, Le jockey perdu in 1926, and held his first exhibition in Brussels in 1927. The exhibition was not a success: critics heaped abuse on it. He was depressed by the failure of his show and he moved to Paris.
