The exhibition brings together around sixty paintings and forty drawings. It begins with several works from the end of the 1930s in which Magritte expresses the imminent outbreak of war and disaster.

Collection focus/The interiors of Paul Guillaume
19 May 2021- 6 July 2021
The various interiors of Paul Guillaume reflect the dazzling trajectory and singularity of this young Parisian gallery owner. His collection, combining modern and old masters with a taste for non-Western statuary, was one of the most interesting in Paris during the interwar period. Through numerous photographs, a selection of archival documents and contemporary news stories, and sketches, including a project by Le Corbusier, and a few paintings, this focus takes us to the heart of Paul Guillaume's artistic universe.
