Although René Magritte is largely associated with surrealist artists such as Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst, he pursued a different goal, namely an increased awareness of reality. As a graduate of the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, Magritte spent most of his career in Belgium. His impassive, realistic style enhanced the effect of his quietly strange depictions of familiar objects and situations. This often involves manipulating the scale (a giant comb; a tiny bed) or confusing opposites: inside and outside, day and night, the human self and the inanimate object. Magritte was particularly interested in the conventional, deeply rooted equation of material things with visual or verbal representations. His works prompt us to resist our habitual response and to recognize the painted images before us as precisely that - images, and not the things they depict.

René François Ghislain Magritte (*21 November 1898 in Lessines in the Walloon province of Hainaut, Belgium; † 15 August 1967 in Brussels) was a Belgian Surrealist painter. He became well known for creating a number of witty and thought-provoking images. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality. His imagery has influenced pop art, minimalist art, and conceptual art.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
