Many people are well aware of René Magritte’s Surrealist art with his erie figures, strange juxtapositions and advertising-influenced sensibility. Well, most people probably are unfamiliar with Magritte’s Art Deco commercial work. Like many other artists, Magritte worked in the graphic arts and during much of the 1920s he worked in a wallpaper factory and also designed posters, advertisements and sheet music covers.
According to Swann Galleries in Manhattan, which is auctions some of his works in an upcoming Modernist Poster sale in May, Magritte designed approximately 40 sheet music covers largely in the Art Deco style. While they aren’t exactly his classic brand of Surrealist, it’s kind of nice — if you’re a die-hard Magritte fan — to think you can possibly own a Magritte for under a $1,000.
