Details

 Magritte's wife - Georgette- 's face is seen in three-quarter view, and her body is not rigidly aligned frontally. Magritte plays tricks with our perception in these "picture-objects," whose fame coincided with its role in the cult of the Surrealist object in the 1930s: the image being so close to the frame, it's almost a one dimensional statue. Although the body is truncated, we automatically fill in the missing areas and see a "complete" nude woman, never mind that her arms and hands are missing.

 

Provenance of the original artwork: The Menil Collection, Houston, USA
