I love the way Magritte's mind works. It is easy to take him for granted because he was so good at what he did and his classic work was so often appropriated/copied.
Magritte invented his own unique world of visual poetry and it is nice that he is still being celebrated (upcoming show at MOMA in Sept. 2013).
