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

21 editions published in 1992 in 4 languages and held by 934 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 ...

Magritte by Siegfried Gohr( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and Italian and held by 501 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 )

39 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 301 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

Werk van de Belgische kunstenaar
René Magritte, 1898-1967 : thought rendered visible by Marcel Paquet( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From men in bowler hats, floating in the sky, to a painting of a pipe above the caption "this is not a pipe", Rene Magritte created an echo-chamber of object and image, name and thing, reality and representation. Like other Surrealist works, Magritte's paintings combine a precise, mimetic technique with abnormal, alienating configurations which defy the laws of scale, logic, and science: A comb the height of a wardrobe, rocks that float in the sky, clouds that drift through an open door. The result is a direct yet disorientating realm, often witty, often unsettling, and always prompting us to look beyond the visible, to what is hidden by what we see. This introductory book explores Magritte's vast repertoire of visual humour, paradox, and surprise which to this day makes us look and look again, not only at the painting, but at our sense of self and the world
René Magritte : beyond painting by Patricia Allmer( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essential René Magritte by Todd Alden( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and French and held by 218 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
Magritte : le jour et la nuit by Henri de Gerlache( Visual )
