Magritte's Blues

Hi,

I'm going to return to Rene Magritte and his work for the rest of this month and until I've finished exploring other resources and materials.

Rene Magritte's brother Paul was a musician. He studied piano with E.L.T. Mesens. The Magritte brothers formed a partnership Studio Dongo in 1932 designing and illustrating sheet music and doing various advertisments.

Here (in the pdf below) are several musical advertising designs by Magritte:
