Right here, Magritte presents a room crammed with acquainted issues, however he provides human proportions to those previously unassuming props of on a regular basis life, creating a way of disorientation and incongruity. Inside and outside are inverted by his rendering of a skyscape on the inside partitions of the room. The acquainted turns into unfamiliar, the conventional, unusual; Magritte creates a paradoxical world that’s, in his personal phrases, “a defiance of widespread sense.” When he first noticed this portray, Magritte’s vendor, Alexander Iolas, was violently upset by it. Tellingly, the artist replied, “In my image, the comb (and the opposite objects as nicely) has particularly misplaced its ‘social character,’ it has develop into an object of ineffective luxurious, which can, as you say, depart the spectator feeling helpless and even make him unwell. Nicely, that is proof of the effectiveness of the image.” (SFMOMA.org)
