Studio Dongo and dog Loulou

Last week I visited the amazing René Magritte Museum in Jette, Brussels. It occupies the house in which the Belgian surrealist painter worked nearly 24 years of his life. Next to his apartment, studio Dongo in the backyard and an biographical section, there was the temporary exhibition 'The Lost Magritte'. It presents reconstructions of 26 disappeared or destroyed works of the artist. Most of them are remembered only by a plain black and white photograph - but for this occasion they were brought back to life, in their original format.
