Rene Magritte – Self portrait 1923 Early works
Magritte’s earliest paintings, which date from about 1915, were Impressionistic in style. During 1916–1918, he studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, under Constant Montald, but found the instruction uninspiring. He also took classes at the Académie Royale from the painter and poster designer Gisbert Combaz.The paintings he produced during 1918–1924 were influenced by Futurism and by the figurative Cubism of Metzinger.
