Magritte the happy donor Artist: Rene Magritte Completion Date: 1966 Place of Creation: Belgium Style: Surrealism Period: Later Period Genre: symbolic painting

René Magritte.  Have always loved the eerie stillness in his work - even with this flying dove it is a very quiet space.

One of my favourite artists, Magritte's work.  I like how all his backgrounds and figures are so realistic, yet what they are doing is impossible.

The Son of Man, Rene Magritte -- self-portrait with the hope of conveying important messages about the individual. Magritte stated “Everything we see hides another thing. We always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present.”
