René Magritte, alongside Dalí and Miró, is one of the greatest artists of the surrealist movement. This virtual reality guided tour uses high-resolution reproductions of 40 of his original works of art to immerse the viewer in a universe rich in details, punctuated by a variety of landscapes: beach, forest, mountains and sky. This immersive experience is not only a celebration of his work but also a tribute to his love, his muse and the greatest inspiration of his life, the artist Georgette Berger.
