The empire of light

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, bk. V, ch. 1)

René Magritte, The Empire of Light (L'Empire des lumières), 1954, Brussels, Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.


EN - The Empire of Light is an oxymoron where René Magritte, le saboteur tranquille, confuses the watcher through the illusion of the fiction that seems real, through the deception of the day that coexists with the night, that is through an exquisitely surrealist technique.

IT - L'Impero delle luci è un ossimoro dove René Magritte, le saboteur tranquille, confonde l'osservatore - con tecnica squisitamente surrealista - attraverso l'illusione dell'irreale che sembra reale, attraverso l'inganno del giorno che coesiste con la notte.
