Delvaux hosts Magritte exhibit

Leather goods company Delvaux, which has an ongoing partnership with the Magritte Foundation Stateside, which mounts many exhibits throughout the world, will be hosting an in-store exhibit at their New York store of five René Magritte works that have never been shown to the public. Opening tomorrow, the exhibit is part of Delvaux's plan to make their store experience more experiential. The brand opened their first New York store this past January.

The René Magritte works will only have a short stint at the store, on view until May 24. In conjunction with the exhibit, Delvaux has also released a limited-edition collection of Magritte-inspired accessories. Small leather goods and a men's travel bag will feature artistic details inspired by the artist.

The Foundation Magritte came into existence into 1998 to preserve the legacy of the René Magritte. The Brussels-based organization oversees the artists work and presence throughout the world.
