Summary

Summary

In 1930 Rene Magritte left Paris -- and the Surrealist scene with which he was identified -- to settle in Jette, a suburb of Brussels, in Magritte's native country of Belgium. Magritte and his wife preferred to live in a house where they could have a proper kitchen and living room, instead of a cramped Paris apartment, and author Jan Ceuleers makes the argument that this decision -- and Magritte's subsequent years in Belgium -- had everything to do with the great painter's creative process The book documents the Jette years with full-color photographs of the preserved interior and exterior spaces of the house, photographs of the Matisses and all of their friends, and a detailed and revealing narrative of their life -- and Matisse's work -- during the period.
