Rene Magritte






Belgian artist Rene Magritte has been my favourite artist since I was in high school, when my best friend, Liz, showed me a book of his paintings. These are some of my faves.

The third painting I posted, of the lion and the man with wings, "Homesickness", is Liz's favourite by Magritte; at least it used to be! My fave one is the first picture, of the train in the fireplace, "Time Transfixed". I used to have a poster of the 4th painting of the 3 spheres, which name escapes me. My friends and I used to refer to it as the "Geffen balls" because they look the logo for Geffen Records.

  1. I like the Surrealists. Dali is my favourite, but Magritte is great, too.
