Magritte by Suzi Gablik

Through shock and paradox, Rene Magritte sets out to reveal the mysterious nature of thought. His paintings, with their unexpected juxtaposition of objects, are a deliberate defiance of common sense. In this classic study, Suzi Gablik explains how Magritte was never involved in the experimental techniques and stylistic innovations of the other Surrealists, and how, as a result, his work has proved to hold more options for the future. 228 illus., 19 in color.

"An important book for anyone interested in Magritte or in the wider issues involved in twentieth-century painting...highly intelligent, carefully researched, through-provoking...will surely be a standard work." --The Times Literary Supplement
