Descripción Histórica:
Irony is not necessarily the lens through which one might understand La Trahison des images (This Is Not a Pipe). As Suzi Gablik points out the arbitrary relationship between an object and its name, explaining that this work is Magritte's way of saying that, "an image is not be confused with something tangible" (Magritte 127). The artist does not want us to see his work as the object, just as he does not want us to accept that the word 'pipe' is actually connected to the thing itself. Given this interpretation, this work takes on a more complex aspect than its simple, polished composition might initially imply.


Created after the original oil painting with the same title of 1929, this original color lithograph is facsimile signed 'Magritte' in graphite color at the lower right; the work bears the blindstamp of the ADAGP in the lower left corner and the blindstamp of the Magritte Succession in the lower right. Numbered 228/275 and created aside from 45 artist's proofs numbered 1-45 and labeled 'EA', this print is also initialed by Charley Herscovici, President of the Fondation Magritte and ADAGP. This limited edition was published by Philippe Moreno, Paris and the print bears a block of printed text on the verso describing this edition.

Biografía de Rene Magritte

René Magritte was a Belgian surrealist artist whose witty and thought-provoking images challenged observers’ preconditioned perceptions of reality.  Magritte's work frequently displays a juxtaposition of ordinary objects in an unusual context, giving new meanings to familiar things.

Magritte grew up in a simple and somewhat tragic household.  His father was a modest tailor.  His mother, who was mentally unsound, committed suicide in the year 1912. Magritte started drawing at a young age, and his first paintings, produced c. 1915, were Impressionistic in style.

Magritte first worked as a draughtsman in a wallpaper factory and, in the year 1922, fell in love with and married Georgette Berger. In 1926, Magritte signed a contract with Galerie La Centaure in Brussels, making it possible for him to paint full-time.  During this time, inspired by his friend André Breton, he became involved with the Surrealist group.

During the German occupation of Belgium in World War II, he stayed in Brussels. He continued to paint, gaining increased recognition.  His work was exhibited in the United States in New York multiple times, including 2 retrospective exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  In 1967, Magritte died of pancreatic cancer, his imagery having greatly influenced pop, minimalist, and conceptual art.
