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
