René Magritte and the Art of Thinking

For Rene Magritte, painting was a form of thinking. Through paintings of ordinary objects rendered with illusionism, Magritte probed the limits of our perception-what we see and cannot see, the nature of representation-as a philosophical system for presenting ideas, and explored perspective as a method of visual argumentation.

For Rene Magritte, painting was a form of thinking. Through paintings of ordinary objects rendered with illusionism, Magritte probed the limits of our perception-what we see and cannot see, the nature of representation-as a philosophical system for presenting ideas, and explored perspective as a method of visual argumentation. This book makes the claim that Magritte's painting is about vision and the act of viewing, of perception itself, and the process of how we see and experience things in the world, including paintings as things.

«

"Applying post-structuralist theory from key figures like Derrida, Foucault, and Deleuze, Lipinski analyzes a broad swath of Magritte’s paintings, supporting her argument with interviews and various writings. Preeminent and less critically explored paintings are given equal attention, allowing for a more nuanced look at Magritte’s concepts and themes. Recommended."

--Choice

"The book is an indispensable publication for all Magritte enthusiasts and for all modern art teachers and students and ends with an overview of the literature and an extensive index of keywords."
