"Personal values"

Rene Magritte - Oil On Canvas - 80 x 100 cm - 1952 - (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, United States))

Here, the artist presents a room filled with familiar things, but he gives human proportions to these formerly unassuming props of everyday life, creating a sense of disorientation and incongruity. Inside and out are inverted by his rendering of a skyscape on the interior walls of the room. The familiar becomes unfamiliar, the normal, strange
Magritte creates a paradoxical world that is, in his own words, "a defiance of common sense."
