Magritte "Empire of Lights"

The Empire of Lights, 1954 by René Magritte
“Life obliges me to do something, so I paint.” “Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.” “We must not fear daylight just because it almost always illuminates a miserable world” “My painting is visible images which conceal nothing... they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question 'What does that mean'? It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.” René Magritte
