Both my husband and I love René Magritte paintings. We have several prints of his work hanging in our house, the most recognizable of which is Son of Man (You know, the man in the bowler hat with an apple in front of his face?). For me they are whimsical reminders that things are not always what they seem. Lately my daughter has been inquisitive about the Magritte's on the wall that juxtapose opposites, so we were really excited when my husband found this book at the library.

"Everything we see hides another thing... we always want to see what is hidden by what we see." ~René Magritte
The quote is the key to Magritte's work, and life itself. This book will be a must own in our house. It's a good reminder to always look for what is hidden.
