Golconda Bag, 1953
Free floating figures. A grid without gravity. A marvel of men rising high in the sky. Fall in love with the falsity of representation in René Magritte’s Golconda tote bag from 1953.© The Menil Collection, Houston.
René Magritte was one of the most important surrealist artists. With his paintings he provoked and challenged the observer's perception of reality. He is an inspiration for us at LOQI. Like Magritte we dream big and laugh loud. We like humor, surprises and blue skies. Surreal realities. Far-fetched fantasies. Extraordinarily unordinary. Belgian-born artist René Magritte is one of the important surrealist artists of all time—always challenging and questioning our perception of reality in wacky and witty ways.
