Rene Magritte (1898–1967) was a Belgian surrealist artist best known for his witty and thought-provoking images and his use of simple graphics and everyday objects, giving new meanings to familiar things. After a poorly received solo show in 1927, he moved to Paris and became firmly lodged in the surrealist movement. He was one of the most well known and famous surrealist painters of all time, yet it was not until his 50s, when he was finally able to reach some form of fame and recognition for his work. He was extremely influential in the transformation of surrealism art, to the pop art movement, with the work he created, and the distinct style that he took with the creations he made during the course of his career. Much of the work created by Magritte takes everyday, normal objects. He would simply rearrange the figures, and locations, forcing the viewer to take a deeper look at what was in front of them, and at what the image truly represented.
