Exhibition at the Musée de L'Orangerie: Magritte / Renoir. Surrealism in full sunlight

The Musée de l'Orangerie, located in the magnificent Jardin des Tuileries, will host a new exhibition on Magritte's "Renoir Period", a chapter that is still largely unknown.  
During this period, between 1941 and 1947, Magritte decided to draw inspiration from impressionists such as Renoir and Seurat, to represent "the beautiful side of life" in so-called "solar" paintings, hence the title of this selection "Surrealism in full sunlight".
The exhibition brings together a hundred of the artist's most intimate and confidential paintings and drawings. 
To better understand the creative process of these works, the museum presents in parallel paintings by Renoir and other artists who were all a source of inspiration for Magritte. 
This will allow you to admire the artistic links that can be created between apparently very distant worlds.
