    1. Magritte is easily my favorite surrealist and quite possibly my favorite painter hands down I think that I see of Magritte s influence in the films of David Lynch think opening scene of Blue Velvet, several subtle and sublime daylight scenes in Mulholland Drive, et al than I do of Lynch s stated main painterly influence Francis Bacon who I m a big fan of by the way.

    2. Magritte by Rene Magritte is a free NetGalley ebook published by my alma mater yay that I read in late August.Surrealist not only in his paintings, this is a compilation of Magritte s letters, interpretations, speeches praising other artists, film scripts, and evocative essays that are off and on speckled with ink sketches and dialogue bubbles in careful une pipe cursive Massive, studied, and witty, this is indeed the written work of someone who playfully referred to himself as a kind of double [...]

    3. Probably only my own dislike of surrealism I don t like the way people are portrayed, I find almost all the artist s works very detached from me as a person It can be interesting only in an odd sort of way, and I suppose some people like that the abnormality of it Magritte doesn t evoke deep emotion, it s nothing I can look on for a long time, there s very little to discover for me.
