Paintings by Rene Magritte are well-known and iconic. He was a 20th century Belgian surrealist artist, famous for his many thought provoking images and especially for his Son of Man painting, created in 1964, showing an image of a man in an overcoat with a bowler hat, but with the face obscured by an apple. Son of Man was used in the remake of the movie The Thomas Crown Affair. Magritte trained in Brussels and his first paintings were Impressionist in style. He married and moved to Paris where he became friends with Andre Breton, and began to explore his Surrealist themes. He worked briefly in London, but returned to Brussels to open an advertising agency with his brother, as he could not support himself financially from the sale of his paintings. In the late 1960’s his works were universally admired and were used in popular culture by musicians for album covers. Rene Magritte's paintings are known to have influenced Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns. His Empire of Light from 1954 is held by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
