[Art/Classics] René Magritte (1898 ~ 1967)

"Surrealism is the immediate knowledge of reality. To be surrealist is to banish the notion of ‘déjà vu’ and seek out the not yet seen."

A pioneer of 20th century Surrealism, the Belgian painter created art fueled with symbolism that reflected the dream world and inner lanscapes. Throughout his career he became associated with the Surrealist movement in Paris alongside Dali & Picasso. His abstract symbolic work has been said to inspire the birth of pop art and many modern art movements.

"The real value of art is measured by its capacity for liberating revelation"
