RENE MAGRITTE

"My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.” - René Magritte

(pronounced: rna mägrt, 1898-1967)

rene magritte was a belgian surrealist painter
Rene Magritte was a Belgian surrealist painter.

He painted in a realistic style. While the objects appear to the viewer to be recognizable, the composition of those recognizable objects appears fantastic.

slide6
His paintings are expressive for their juxtaposition of common objects, often altered in scale, and placed in absurd settings. Magritte is deeply interested in the process of thought, and his paintings

tend to raise the awareness of the viewer to their own thought processes.

slide7
More often than not, Magritte chose ordinary things from which to construct his works - trees, chairs, tables, doors, windows, shoes, shelves, landscapes, people. He wanted to be understood via these ordinary things, but he also wanted to shock and surprise his viewers.
