Magritte, Oreille-Cloche

Oreille-Cloche (La Leçon de Musique)

Color etching from Le Lien de Paille, 1969, 147 x 102 mm., Kaplan & Baum 15. Fine impression on Rives wove paper with full margins, signed with the signature stamp and numbered in pencil from the edition of 150. The work was published only posthumously. The image is typical Magritte: two ordinary things represented realistically, but brought into unexpected conjunction and set against a geometrically patterned background. It is his own style of surrealism. As one might ask what it means, the artist would answer that it means nothing, that it is a mystery and that the mystery means nothing. And yet, like a bon mot, the images stick in the mind and reverberate differently in every person who sees them.
