René Magritte, L’empire des Lumières (Empire of Lights), 1954

I would agree with you, but seeing as this is Rene Magritte and a few clues in the painting (the street lamp is lit, the houses lights are on) I tend to lean more towards the artist making some conscious decisions to make the setting appear this way, as opposed to chalking it up to just an effect of photography at the time.

That all being said, I am not saying that I don’t think he painted this from a photo. He very well could have, I dont know Magritte that well.
