Summary:
"The house where artist René Magritte lived and worked was left untouched by his widow after his death in 1967 and it tells much about the man who found inspiration in everyday surroundings. Childhood experiences and the suicide of Magritte's mother are recalled by the artist himself in archive footage and he explains how this tragic event later inspired themes in his paintings. The film focuses on the recurring influences of certain objects and places in Magritte's art, his experimentation with futurism and his attraction to the work of Chirico before discovering his own unique surrealist style."--container.
