The Belgian Rene Magritte (1898-1967) was one of the most well known and famous surrealist painters of all time. He became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images that fall under the umbrella of surrealism. His work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality.

This mysterious image of a mighty, leafy tree transformed into a cylindrical cupboard with a white ball and illuminated house reveals the lasting impact of the Italian painter Giorgio de Chirico's pittura metafisica on Magritte's oeuvre.

From an Art booklet (self adhesive stamps) with 10 paintings of the artist Magritte.

Card signed by the designer Myriam Voz. (page 13)
