Description

"Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see." Rene Magritte

D.B. Johnson writes andillustrates the surreal story of famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte and his very mysterious (and mischievous ) hat. While the art reflects some of Magritte's own work, the text sets readers on a fun and accessible path to learning about the simpler concepts behind Mr. Magritte's work.

This delightful picture book captures the playfulness and the wonderment of surrealist art. Four transparent pages add yet another level of surrealism to the illustrations as pictures can be altered with the turn of a page.



Praise For Magritte's Marvelous Hat
