Bowler hats, large apples, pipes that aren’t pipes—René Magritte’s paradoxical images are among the most familiar and fascinating of the 20th century. Magritte began in the Surrealist idiom but experimented with a variety of styles before moving back into his own distinctive, “hypertropic” style in the 1950s. His creations with their wild shifts of scale and context create a mixture of mystery, illusion and reality. Ms. Angevine invites us to learn more about this Belgian Surrealist. Don’t miss this chance to discover more about the work of this remarkable artist, who once asserted “Everything we see hides another thing…” See if you agree.
