Magritte's work explored themes of identity, perception, and the absurdity of everyday life. Surrealist known for his thought-provoking and enigmatic paintings. A key figure in the Surrealist movement and is known for his meticulous attention to detail and his ability to create dreamlike and illogical scenes.

The titles of the paintings are not explanations and the paintings are not illustrations of the titles. (Rene Magritte)
