Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Kultur's Artists of the 20th Century series presents in-depth discussions of both the notable works of and the lives of some of the most acclaimed figures of the art world. Belgian painter René Magritte is the focus of this entry. One of the key proponents of the magical realism style, Magritte's dreamlike works were known for being both surreal and lifelike at the same time. Other episodes in the series include Artists of the 20th Century: Andy Warhol, Artists of the 20th Century: Henri Matisse, and Artists of the 20th Century: Marcel Duchamp.
