René MAGRITTE - La Joconde

Signed Magritte from the edition of 250.
Art Foundry Bocquel in France, 2010
Certificate of authenticity signed by Charly Herscovici, Succession MAGRITTE

Patinated bronze sculpture by René Magritte, casted in France at Art Foundry Bocquel using the lost-wax method and produced after the 1967 original sculpture Magritte designed after his 1960 own painting of the same name.

Numbered, inscribed with René Magritte's signature, Magritte Succession's hallmark, stamped by the foundry and shipped with a certificate of authenticity stamped by the Magritte Foundation and signed by Mr. Charly Herscovici (President of the Magritte Foundation, Chairman of the Magritte Museum & unique representative of the Magritte Succession).

Our company Artvalue and its subsidiary Art-Lithographies are the worldwide exclusive printer and publisher of René Magritte bronze sculptures and lithographs since 2002.

The sculpture is featured in D. Sylvester, ed., René Magritte, Catalogue raisonné: Oil Paintings, Objects and Bronzes 1949-1967, New York, 1993, vol. iii, p. 466, no. 1094.

In January 1967, seven months before his death, Magritte decided to produce sculptures based on his most emblematic paintings. He translated 8 of his works into large scale sculptures in 3 dimensions enabling him to express the true nature of his work with strange and incongruous objects and patterns. The sculpture is based on La Joconde painting, 1960, composed of three independent curtains, one of which Magritte’s works’ inherent sky and clouds was painted upon, and a ringbell also found in many of Magritte’s artworks. Magritte used this curtain motif in numerous paintings and drawings during the last decade of his life.
