  4. Magritte

    “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.
