The last artist contribution to the Gallery Box 20/21 is on its way. The Lothar Wolleh Estate presents us with an iconic portrait of René Magritte and his wife with some very special features.
- The photo is a color picture from 1967.
- The photo is in the Magritte archive.
- This photo is said to have inspired Paul Simon for the song “René and Georgette Magritte with Their Dog After the War.” Simon told a story about being at Joan Baez’s house waiting for her to put the phone down to start rehearsing. He pulled a book from her shelf of Magritte’s artwork and found a photo that gave rise to the title of the famous song.
The Lothar Wolleh Estate makes this contribution to the Gallery Box because of the collaboration for the exhibition “Lothar Wolleh: Intuition! Interaction!” in the M HKA and the exhibition “Wer nicht Denken will, fliegt raus!” in the gallery.
