Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sense of the amazing, the surprising, and the ridiculous in Magritte's paintings.

It is impossible to overlook the influence of René Magritte (1898-1967) on contemporary art. His surrealistic painting turns the usual order of things ironically on its head, thus restoring mystery to a world that has lost its magic.

His work typically conveys a sense of the amazing, the surprising, and the ridiculous ? but also the unsettling. Without a specific message, Magritte's paintings nonetheless speak to us, creating a connection between opposites on an associative level. Thus a dinner roll can with complete naturalness fly past a barred dungeon opening.

In discussing his art, Magritte spoke of 'inspired thoughts': he was indeed a painter-philosopher who thought in pictorial form and moved with seemingly playful lightness in the exalted atmosphere of his own imagination.

Synopsis:

One of Taschen's new art albums, tremendous value at 3.99.

The series has always been highly regarded for its insight and authority, providing an invaluable introduction to key artists and movements in art history.
