Magritte Now You See it, Now You Don't by Angela Wenzel


Magritte Now You See it, Now You Don't by Angela Wenzel

In his art Magritte depicts everyday objects from a new perspective; nothing he creates turns out quite the way we expect. A stone floats weightlessly in the air, a landscape dissolves into fragments, a seagull wears a dress made of summer clouds and a locomotive steams out of a firepalce. This book introduces children to Magritte's crazy, topsy-turvy world full of riddles and secrets and to the concept of seeing everyday things differently.
