Rene Magritte: master of extra-ordinary

  • Jul 26, 2014 · 2:00 PM

Magritte’s works are not know for technical mastery but for their conceptual ingenuity. His style is decidedly representational yet unexpectedly so.  Often, it is quite difficult to explain the meaning of his paintings despite the fact that the objects are clearly recognizable.  It is their placement  or displacement, the toying with our habits of perception that lend his work their unmistakable Magritte charm.

We are in luck, too.  Magritte exhibit has arrived in Chicago. A large collection of his art is on exhibit at the Institute until October.  Perhaps we can do a follow-up meeting to our discussion at the Institute.
