« Les Menottes de Cuivre » (1) is the bronze edition of the surrealist work created in 1931. Magritte was the first artist to appropriate this antique sculpture discovered at Milo then exposed in the louvre Museum. the Venus de Milo appears in several of Magritte’s paintings. After he created this particular work, he sent a photograph of it to André Breton, asking him to think of a title. he wrote : « this work recalls the masks on which i painted the sky or a forest. here the head is white, the body flesh•colored ; the curtains are blue, the base and the sections of arm and foot are black. in my view this gives the Venus an unexpected life. » to this, André Breton replied : « i resign myself to proposing a title that is purely poetic, « the Copper handcuffs, » which seems to me to have the particular advantage of incorporating into the work an additional color without inasmuch introducing anything arbitrary, since copper is the metal which corresponds to Venus. »


The exhibition Le Surréalisme et l'objet help by the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d'Art Moderne in Paris from october 201 3 to March 201 4, hosts a 47 cm-high bronze sculpture of this edition, which also illustrates the Dictionnaire de l'objet surréaliste, published under the direction of didier ottinger, curator of the exhibition.
