Summary
"In a groundbreaking analysis, Silvano Levy unravels the hidden structures of Magritte's paintings. Magritte had often hinted that there was a covert rationale behind his production, but never gave explanations. Drawing on conversations with the artist's widow and key members of the Belgian surrealist group, Silvano Levy deciphers Magritte's oeuvre in a meticulous study. The inclusion of previously unavailable source material in the form of photographs and substantial interviews with Georgette Magritte, Louis Scutenaire, Irène Hamoir, Marcel Mariën and George Melly provides valuable primary resources, as well as shedding additional light on the 'Magritte code'"--Book jacket
