“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.”
The famed Surrealist painter René Magritte was born on this day in 1898 in Belgium.
A major player in the Surrealist movement during the 1920s, Magritte frequently delved into mystical concepts and the disconnection between objects, people, and their meanings.
His paintings have a thought-provoking appeal that forces viewers to reexamine their own perceptions of reality.
