Magritte Shines a Light on the Invisible

28 October | New York

“The sky is a form of curtain because it hides something from us. We are surrounded by curtains. Each thing we see hides something else that we want to see. Everything that is visible hides something that is invisible,” René Magritte once stated. In this episode of Expert Voices, Helena Newman describes a painting that was almost invisible – a masterpiece that has never been to auction. L’ovation will be a highlight of the Impressionist & Modern evening Sale (28 October 2020, New York).
