René Magritte’s Clouds

The witty and thought- provoking Belgian surrealist, René Magritte, who created a series of mysterious cloud related works that challenges the viewer’s perceptions of between reality and illusion. An inspiring figure to a cloud lover artist such as myself.

René Magritte described his paintings as “visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, ‘What does that mean?’. It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.”
