Magritte’s paintings have puzzled, fascinated and delighted art lovers the world over. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but few would dispute that the besuited Belgian was a master of truth as illusion or is it illusion as truth? His art is instantly accessible and yet infinitely elusive. Magritte himself claimed that everything was unknowable and that’s what he tried to convey in his paintings. This five-week course will try to throw some light on the ‘unknowable’. In the meantime, how about pondering on this from the man who excelled in showing us the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and vice versa? ‘Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist’.
