Magritte in Frankfurt

°

Another great art show in the art exhibition hall Schirn in Frankfurt:
Belgian surrealist artist René François Ghislain Magritte.
DER VERRAT DER BILDER.
THE TREACHERY OF IMAGES.


Be prepared to admire the works of art with ...
MANY other people, school classes, guided groups, 
people listening to their audio guides ...
reading all those several texts on the walls ...


Normally and also now I am not showing the best pieces
in my blog, in order to encourage you to visit the show yourself.
This painting you would never ever recognize as Magritte, or?
Hungersnot, 1948.


It's never too late to learn, Oxford dictionary explains:

denizen
A person, animal, or plant that lives or is found in a particular place.
‘denizens of field and forest’

Origin:
Late Middle English deynseyn, via Anglo-Norman French from Old French deinz ‘within’ 
(from Latin de ‘from’ + intus ‘within’) + -ein (from Latin -aneus ‘-aneous’). 
The change in the form of the word was due to association with citizen.




And this is how the denizens look like (detail).


Now look very carefully, why would I make a pic of this?
Down on the right hand side is ... an excellent year!


IS AN ARTIST A PHILOSOPHER?
CAN IMAGES BE TREACHEROUS?
HOW REAL IS REALITY?

Magritte's oeuvre definitely needs some background knowledge.
Take your time and go through the digitorial in the internet:



But many paintings you will ba able to enjoy
also without knowing the philosophy behind.


On the walls of the staircase it's like being inside a comic book.


Yes, it is the painter with the bowler hat.
Melone, as the Germans say.
