About Magritte Watch - Komono - King's Museum

This Magritte Watch is inspired by the artist's painting: King's Museum. A nose, a mouth and a pair of eyes: these unremarkable features become loaded with meaning and mystery once they are left floating in space instead of being reassuringly anchored to a human face. Komono’s feminine Estelle sets these facial elements even further adrift against a blank white backdrop.

René Magritte was one of the most famous surrealist painters of all time. His ability to challenge perception inspired many artists to come, such as Andy Warhol, Jan Verdoodt and Jasper Johns. Furthermore, his idiosyncratic vision of Surrealism has won over the hearts and minds of millions.

He worked across various media including painting, printmaking, sculpting, photography, and film. His depiction of normal, everyday objects rearranged in an unusual way allowed his viewers to take a deeper look at what was in front of them and realize what the image truly represented.

One of his most well-known pieces, The Treachery of Images exemplifies his ability to give new meanings to objects. It is an image of a pipe, and beneath it, a message that reads, “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (“This is not a pipe”).

This ability to make the mundane strange and the known unknown has solidified Magritte’s talents in the art world. Eventually, it has profoundly affected the Conceptualist and Pop Art movements, to this very day. More details Magritte Watch - Komono - King's Museum:
