Fine Art Tuesday

Empire of Light
Rene Magritte born 1898 in Belgium, died 1967. Magritte was considered a Surrealist.

Frankly, most of his paintings do not appeal to me but Empire of Light resonates with me.

The sky shouts "4:00 in the afternoon" and the house, tree and pond whisper "Half hour after sunset"

These two paintings are more typical of his output. It just goes to show that just because an artist is famous for belonging to a particular "school", they might surprise you every once in a whiile.
