The False Mirror

The False Mirror was completed by Rene Magritte in 1928. It was done using oil on canvas. Magritte completed this piece in Paris, France. Rene Magritte is a surrealists painter, and like all surrealists, he considers his work to be the product of his unconscious mind. Sometimes called "magical realism," this piece invokes the characteristics of surrealism by relating unrelated objects. I liked this particular piece because it is a great representation of the old saying, "the eyes are the window to the soul."
