Rene MAGRITTE - Memory of a Journey

Rene Magritte Memory of a Journey is a dream-like image that seemingly evades logic. The image of the Leaning Tower of Pisa supported by a giant feather brings to mind several associations all at once. We are reminded of the magnetism of iconic monuments from cultures long gone, of the touristic pilgrimages people make to far-flung sites, and of the impermanence of these constructions. The Tower is a perfect example, since it has long stood in this suspended state on the brink of collapse. Like our snapshots taken on vacation, Magritte’s composition is both arbitrary and poignant. With a great blue sky hovering overhead, broken up into literal blocks of cloud, the feeling that something will soon happen is inescapable in this fantastical work.

Created after several original paintings dating to 1949-52 by René Magritte (1898-1967),this work is signed’Magritte’ in facsimile in graphite color in the lower right margin. Numbered from the edition of 275 in pencil in the lower left margin.
