Magritte Museum opens in Brussels
King Albert and Queen Paola officially opened the Magritte Museum in Brussels on Wednesday.
More than two hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures and photos are being exhibited. They paint a picture of Magritte's entire career.
"La trahison des images" with the text "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" is arguably his most important work.
Even before it was open the museum came under fire. Critics alleged it would not be able to exhibit the artist's greatest works, but Magritte expert Rik Sauwen denies this: "He designed icons and painted countless different versions."
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (Wednesdays until 8 pm).
