The Menaced Assassin. René Magritte, 1927. #magritte #surrealism #arthistory

Believe it or not, this painting was a commissioned portrait. "Not to be Reproduced" by Belgian surrealist #RenéMagritte was a portrait of poet Edward James although his face is not depicted. The man in standing in front of a mirror but we can only see the back of his head even in the mirror reflection. If you take a look a the book on the mantelpiece, you see that it is reflected correctly.

What reaction would you have if you had ordered this portrait? Amused? Shocked? Faceless?
The painting is on view at the @boijmans in Rotterdam, Netherlands. #Magritte passed away on this day, 15 August 1967.

#OTD 50 years ago, the surrealist artist René #Magritte died. What's your favourite work by Magritte? #surrealism #surrealist #painting #painter #modernart #artstagram #instaart

The Surrealist #movement was initiated in the early 20th Century, according to André Breton to 'resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality.' This aim underpins many iconic works including René Magritte's 1964 painting Son of Man. Magritte passed away #otd in 1967, but his enigmatic works continue to inspire and perplex - as E.H. Gombrich writes in The Story of Art 'His dream-like images are memorable because they are inexplicable.' #renemagritte #magritte #surrealist #surrealism #andrebreton #sonofman #gombrich #storyofart #onthisday #otd #uncanny #artbook #artbooks

It's nice to try and imagine being there.
That's what I like about landscape painting. One can escape with their mind, yet almost in a physical way. I can't quite explain it in words. It's more of a feeling of surrender to the image. #Magritte #renemagritte #landscape #art #surreal #surrealism #surrealist #painting #cloud #glass #escape #escapism #peaceful #artist

This is the computer mock up of where I think I want this painting to go. The leaves are all digital. Wanted to have a combo Rousseau / Magritte / renaissance vibe. Some interesting elements are going to go onto the playing board. Feeling excited about where this one is going!!!!!! #mockup #experiment #painting #stepinsidemystory #redandblack #blueandgreen #arkansasartist

If the dream is a translation of waking life, waking life is also a translation of the dream - Rene Magritte
