The Lovers

The Lovers
Rene Magritte
1928, Oil on Canvas

I love this painting because of the mystery behind it all. It gives a soft of literal interpretation to the phrase, "love is blind." I think that his artistic ability is great, due to the richness in color, the softness and realistic nature of the cloth covering the two people's heads, and the contrast between the subjects  and the background.
