Magritte : the silence of the world by David Sylvester( Book )

27 editions published in 1992 in 4 languages and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book, written in conjunction with the Magritte catalogue raisonné, is to look at the artist and his art in ways which lie outside the scope of that publication ... It discusses the long-term development of images and ideas' and it ventures opinions about events and patterns in the artist's life"--Page [7]
Magritte by Marcel Paquet( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of key paintings, which accompanies a retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, is particularly notable because the paintings have been selected to show Magritte's influence on the art of the latter half of the twentieth century, especially Pop and Conceptual art. An essay by art historian Siegfried Gohr explores some of the major themes in Magritte's work, while more than sixty color plates tantalize the viewer."--Jacket

This is not a pipe by Michel Foucault( Book )

33 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the author's classic essay on the complex relationship between language and image in René Magritte's iconic painting. What does it mean to write "This is not a pipe" across a bluntly literal painting of a pipe? The painting is not a pipe, but rather an image of a pipe, which was Magritte's point. By exploring the nuances and ambiguities of Magritte's visual critique of language, he finds the painter less removed than previously thought from the pioneers of modern abstraction. The author's essay offers a view of a painter whose influence and popularity continue to grow unchecked
The essential René Magritte by Todd Alden( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Belgian Surrealist Rene Magritte is a master of optical illusion. His influence on pop culture is felt everywhere -- from advertising and corporate logos, to consumer products and design. Magritte's paintings are witty and easy to enter, but their eerie calm can be unnerving and leave us with a feeling of Let's get out of here! We end up wondering if what we're looking at is what we're supposed to be seeing." "Here's the story behind Magritte's: Shrouded lovers kissing. Trains roaring out of fireplaces. Bowler-hatted men floating through the air. Giant apples that fill entire rooms. Pipes that aren't pipes ... or are they? Book jacket."--Jacket
