One of the "Great Modern Masters" series of monographs on 20th-century artists, this volume offers an introduction to Rene Magritte, reproducing major works from all periods of his career. A Surrealist, Magritte specialized in visual sleight-of-hand and had a strong interest in language. Rene Magritte (1898-1967) created images that are among the most enigmatic in modern art. His meticulously painted cloud-filled skies, bowler-hatted men, and oversized household objects have had a profound influence on the art of the twentieth century. This is not a pipe, he wrote beneath his precisely realistic painting of a pipe, proposing the simple notion that a representation of a pipe and a pipe itself are not one and the same. This book provides the reader with an introduction to the world of Magritte's magic realism, reproducing in color 63 of his most important works.
