The René Magritte Museum in Jette is celebrating its 25th anniversary! The museum was born out of the passion of a Belgian collector and was inaugurated on June 5, 1999 in the house where the famous surrealist worked René Magritte and lived for 24 years. Coincidentally, this anniversary coincides with the 100th anniversary of surrealism!

We are celebrating with two consecutive exhibitions on Magritte’s friendships. During our anniversary weekend on June 8 and 9, 2024, part 1 of this exhibition series will start with a solo exhibition on Jane Graverol (1905, Ixelles – 1984, Fontainebleau). The artist met Magritte in his studio in Rue Esseghem and maintained a friendly relationship with him. The exhibition “In company of René Magritte: Jane Graverol” honors her with some 15 works.
