ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Sheherazade is one of multiple paintings that Rene Magritte made on the theme of the titular storyteller from the Arabian Nights, whose role was to deliver such well-known tales as Aladdin and Ali Baba. René Magritte Shéhérazade is symbolic of wealth, exoticism and even eroticism.

CURATORIAL NOTES
As Magritte once said, “Shéhérazade is the name given to the woman-pearl in memory of the Thousand and One Nights”. The legendary storyteller from the Arabian Nights inspired Magritte a lot, as he painted a whole series of works using this theme.
Adnan Abbasi
Curator
Here, Magritte really invented a new way of shaping silhouette: using a pearl necklace with three symmetrical loops, he gives life to a mysterious being. Magritte’s playfulness is at his best in this painting as well as in all of his Shéhérazade art pieces
Victoria Gandit
Curator
A strange character this Shéhérazade, made of pearls and whose skin seems to blend with the curtains. The body has no importance, rather it’s the captivating soul that Magritte manifests here. A way to represent only the essential.
