Discordant Chords. Whimsical whit. A provocative pipe. Find the unfamiliar in the familiar with a seriously mysterious Magritte in the Treachery of Images tote bag. © County-Museum Los Angeles / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 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.
