Explore Ren&eaute; Magritte’s word-images and how his sense of humor, his play with logic, and his reliance on the viewer’s imagination to flesh out imaginary landscapes disorient us. Then, create your own word-images, drawing landscapes or portraits with words or word-puzzles.

In conjunction with the exhibition Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926–1938
