The Lovers
Rene Magritte

This artist is known for his surreal paintings, he was similar to Salvador Dali because of this. I chose this particular painting because its one of my favorites by him. Its mysterious in a way, and i like the perspective that he used in it. I also like the colors, because they contrast very well with each other. Some have interpreted this work as a depiction of the inability to fully unveil the true nature of even our most intimate companions. Other art historians have said that he bases some of his work on his mother who committed suicide when he was 14, however he denies this.
