This week we will be studying an artwork called False Mirror by Rene Magritte (Belgian, 1898-1967).
He is a famous surrealism artist.
He likes to put ordinary common objects together and create new meanings.
Magritte wants us to see things differently.
He plays with our illusion and has lots of fun doing it.
