About Personal Values Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte is renowned for depicting typical, everyday objects in absurd and illogical combinations. His 1952 oil on canvas, Personal Values, is no exception: this dreamlike painting of oddly-sized, ordinary items intentionally creates a sense of curiosity and confusion for the viewer.
Well-blended brushstrokes and carefully positioned shadows enhance the three-dimensional nature of the objects while a striking color palette of yellow, beige and pink adds to the vivid imagery.
About René Magritte René Magritte (born November 21, 1898, Lessines, Belgium—died August 15, 1967, Brussels) was a Belgian artist, one of the most prominent Surrealist painters, whose bizarre flights of fancy blended horror, peril, comedy, and mystery. His works were characterized by particular symbols—the female torso, the bourgeois “little man,” the bowler hat, the apple, the castle, the rock, the window, and other ordinary objects, which were often set in unusual or unsettling situations.
