Artist:René Magritte Oil on canvas 65.2×74.5 cm 1926
René Magritte (Belgian, 1898-1967) is one of the most well-known Surrealist painters and his work is immediately recognizable for its portrayal of clouds, green apples, and bowler hats. Constructing his paintings around traps and uncertainties, Magritte pursued a signature figurative style that combined mystery with comedy.
