In his surrealist art, Magritte enables us to see everyday objects from a new angle: nothing he depicts turns out quite the way we expect. A stone floats weightlessly in the air, a landscape dissolves into fragments, a seagull wears a dress made of summer clouds, and a locomotive steams out of the fireplace.
This fun, informative, and eye-catching book introduces children to Magritte’s crazy, topsy-turvy world full of riddles and secrets, and to the concept of viewing ordinary things from an extraordinary perspective. This colorful book is a perfect introduction to the Belgian painter’s works, ideal for children with inquisitive minds and unbridled imaginations.
