Magritte & Dali takes viewers on a journey from the late 1920s to the early 1940s, the period when the two artists’ careers overlapped. Although both had very different approaches to their respective paintings, they were equally committed to implementing practices that challenged reality and generated fuller freedom of imagination and experience. Their works also employ several shared themes, which are explored throughout the exhibit. Magritte paintings on display include Le Baiser [The Kiss] (1938), La Magie noire [Black Magic] (1945) L’Oiseau de ciel [Sky Bird] 1966, Dieu n’est pas un saint [God Is No Saint] (ca. 1935-36).

“René Magritte is a quintessential figure in the surrealist movement, and we are proud to display the first exhibit solely pairing the most recognized Surrealists of our era,” said Dr. Hank Hine, Executive Director of The Dalí.

Magritte & Dali is organized by The Dalí Museum in partnership with The Magritte Museum (a part of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium) and is co-curated by Dr. William Jeffett, Chief Curator of Exhibitions at The Dalí Museum, and Michel Draguet, General Director of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Following the presentation of Magritte & Dali at The Dalí Museum, the exhibit will travel to the Magritte Museum in Brussels.
