|The Great War by Rene Magritte|
I am sad to admit that I am not that knowledgeable about art. I know the obvious artists like Da Vinci and Picasso and a few others that are more personal favorites but, I don't know nearly as much as I would like. I have no technical knowledge of art and when I look at art I go strictly by my gut. I may not know what the art means but, I fall in love with the colors, the composition, and how the painting makes me feel.
Rene Magritte happens to be one of those personal favorite artists of mine and I was so excited to see one of his paintings as Style Imitating Art this week. I have no idea what his paintings mean but, I am captivated by the images.
I thought the book was the perfect real life way to interpret the flower for me, as I usually have a book glued to my face anyway.
