Brent, glad you liked it. Check out more of Magritte's work at http://www.huntfor.com/absoluteig/magritte.htm . Actually, I was not familiar with this particular piece until I discovered this site.

There was an exhibition of Magritte's work here in Atlanta a few years ago. He's one of my favorites.

I would very much like to see a Magritte exhibition. I'm not sure if there's ever been one in Montreal.

Nick, thanks for posting such a wonderful picture.

I wrote a poem after looking at the picture for quite some time and posted it on my blog this morning.

Thanks for the inspiration. Keep up the awesome blog-work!

Best,

Jordan Reynolds
