Portrait de Georgette Magritte


par son mari, 1926.
If one was asked to make a list of the recurring images in Magritte's paintings it would probably include apples & birds, men in bowler hats, bilboquets, pipes, horse's bells, clouds. Rarely would it include Georgette, Magritte's wife of forty-five years.

Yet she is everywhere, in full, in part, in parts. Naked, clothed. Turning or turned to stone, to wood. In a courtesan's palace. Hidden, found. By the sea. Ever-changing, she remains the constant.
