Rene Magritte (1898-1967) was a surrealist artist whose
thought-provoking works used ordinary objects to challenge how
viewers perceived reality. His extensive oeuvre was documented in a
comprehensive five-volume project, led by distinguished art critic
and writer David Sylvester. In the years that followed the
publication of the final volume in 1997, numerous works purporting
to be by Magritte appeared on the art market. Under the auspices of
the Fondation Magritte, a committee was established to verify the
authenticity of newly discovered works as well as those previously
recorded as "whereabouts unknown" or listed as appendix items in
the original volumes of the" Rene Magritte Catalogue Raisonne."
"Rene Magritte: Newly Discovered Works" includes color
illustrations of 130 previously unpublished or unknown works
authenticated by the committee between September 2000 and March
2010. Like its predecessors, this volume is the culmination of
years of research, which synthesizes new discoveries about the
artworks and details of the life of Magritte himself. Accompanying
text and comparative documentation provide a wealth of
complementary information, including the circumstances of a work's
discovery, references to letters, quotations in their original
languages, and citations from previous volumes.
