René Magritte at Amos Rex

For the first time in Finland art lovers could admire Surrealism of the famous Belgian surrealist 
René Magritte (1898-1967). Magritte, who is considered a leading figure in Surrealism,
is particularly known for his works that turn everyday reality upside down
- an apple fills a whole room and a nose becomes a pipe. 

I visited Amos Rex' exhibition in May and share with you a few impressions.
Surrealism is a bit strange for me, anyway the exhibition was worth while visiting!
How about you, do you know Magritte? Love him, or hate him?

The Magritte exhibition was very popular and also I had to queue for half an hour.
To finish my post Magritte’s famous green apple that fills the whole room.

  3. Dear Riitta,
    what a beautiful, comprehensive exhibition. The pictures are so versatile and above all multi-layered. You need time for the details.
    Best regards

  5. I agree with you: it was interesting to visit.
    Have a nice day, Riitta!

  6. Surrealism is something I like to see a little of, but I would never enjoy it in my home. I always wonder what the artist was thinking as he worked. Great images, Riitta, of a most interesting exhibition.

    1. Thank you Lorrie. There was explaining text beside every painting, but the crowd was too dense, was not alle to read. I like to read a detective novel now and tien. But thinking of the writers who keep this genre book after book - don't they feel sick of all twisted cruelties?

  7. Kiinnostavia, ajatuksia herättäviä teoksia. Kiitos kuvakierroksesta näyttelyssä! Kauniita kesäpäiviä!

  8. Muy interesante. Un beso.

  9. Surrealism has never been my cup of tea, but I do find them strange and fascinating. Thanks so much for sharing your experience.
