Culture: Magritte Visits The Museum of Modern Art (MoMa), New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Do you live in or around New York City or are you planning to visit the metropolis in the near future? Than you might consider going to the current Magritte exhibition at New York`s Museum of Modern Art (MoMa). The show is called "Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926–1938" and is running through January 12, 2014 (moma).

René Magritte is my favorite painter. I am fascinated how he played with the reality and told tiny stories in his paintings. Some of his works could inspire compelling movies, at least in the heads of the observers. I have seen many of the exhibited pictures before in books or on Internet (Google has - as usual - a nice overview google), but spotting them in real gives them a certain magic.

Unfortunately I couldn´t make many pictures there thanks to the museum´s stupid "no photographs" policy which is strictly enforced. Therefore I can introduce here just a small selection of the masterpieces which you can admire at the MoMa.

But anyway. Enjoy.
