René Magritte

René Magritte

I picked this painting, will make you think mainly because of the clever and strange french text witch translate to "This is not a pipe" in english

René Magritte's early work consisted of people (Mostly men) with odd things infront of thier faces

"Son of a man"

In Rene Magrittes early life he began to draw because of his mothers death (suicide), he thought it would take his mind of the awful tragedy

I think this would be one of Rene Magrittes accomplisments because it is one of his best selling paintings. It sold for 1,100,300$

The Treachery of Images

1950

Why Rene started to draw.

Best selling painting

"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".-Rene Magritte
