Note: Magritte is known as a painter, but the ideas behind his art as well as writings, interviews, and analyses comprise the focus here. Note also that Magritte’s approach to art has a basis distinct from approaches of other surrealists. Some of the works cited contain depictions of Magritte’s artwork.
