Description

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium dedicate an exceptional exhibition to Salvador Dalí and René Magritte. For the first time ever, the connection and influences between the two greatest icons of the surrealist movement are highlighted.

In the spring of 1929, Salvador Dalí and René Magritte meet in Paris, surrounded by the great names of the artistic avant-garde. In August of the same year, at Dalí's invitation, Magritte travels to Cadaqués, the Spanish painter's home base. This surrealist summer - which also includes visits by Éluard, Miró and Buñuel - will prove decisive.

Dalí and Magritte both aim to challenge reality, question our gaze and shake up our certainties. The Catalan and the Belgian show a fascinating proximity, despite their very different creations and personalities, which would eventually lead them to drift apart.

The exhibition reveals the personal, philosophical and aesthetic links between these two iconic artists through more than 80 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, films and archival objects.
