The Son Of Man by Rene Magritte

"The Son of Man" by Rene Magritte was painted in 1964. The painting itself portrays a normal man standing by the water. The only difference about this painting is the man's face is covered by a green apple, but you can see that one of his eye is peeking out. Also it seems that his left arm is backwards.  I choose this painting because of the meaning behind it. It shows us humanity. We see things we want to see but they are not visible. It also promotes human conflict with every day while it is right in front of us. I personally want to see what the man's face looks like. I thought this painting had a very good message.
