“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” – René Magritte
“Rene Magritte is one of the most famous Surrealist painters, but it wasn’t until his 50s that he achieved international recognition. In Surrealism’s progression into Pop Art, Magritte’s work was enormously influential and his images continue to be celebrated.”
“Magritte’s paintings challenge the everyday, the notion of common sense. By subtly rearranging recognisable forms and perspectives he forces the viewer to look more closely at what is generally taken for granted. He exploited the ambiguities between real objects and images of them and delighted in playing with the viewer’s expectations.” – artrepublic.com
