Rene Magritte: The Fifth Season

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

This exhibition focuses on the latter half of Magritte's career, from approximately 1943 to 1967, a period of remarkable artistic transformation and revitalization. Featuring more than 50 oil paintings and a dozen gouaches, the exhibition will reveal Magritte as an artist attuned to the paradoxes within reality, who subverted our expectations of the world around us. The subtitle "The Fifth Season"--taken from one of Magritte's paintings made during the war years--evokes an alternative reality both within and outside the accepted conventions of time and space.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Rene Magritte: The Fifth Season :

Every opportunity to see Magritte's work has been extraordinary for the revelation of details lost in reproductions; "The Fifth Season" promises nothing less. This highly anticipated exhibition features more than 20 works on view for the first time in a U.S. museum and centers around an unusual body of work that signified a great departure from his widely recognized style. Must see.
