"The treachery of images (This is not a pipe)"

Rene Magritte - Oil On Canvas - 1948

This painting is a brutal illustration of many types of people being indiscriminately taken by death. Skeletons are murdering hundreds of people, everyone from peasants to nobles, and from children to the King. None are spared their fate at the hands of death. This painting illustrates the influence of the Dutch master painter Heironymous Bosch, who also painted demonic illustrations of death and the supernatural, on Brueghel’s work. Brueghel created a few of these demonological paintings, including Mad Meg, but soon returned to his genre paintings of peasants and landscapes. This painting has also been referred to in popular culture, in books, on the cover of CD albums, and even in video games.
