The Museum of Modern Art will be highlighting legendary painter René Magritte and his pre-World War II works. “Magritte: The Mystery of the Ordinary, 1926-1938” looks like it will be the institution's major fall event. Around 80 works will be displayed, showing the artist's exploration of surrealism and his interests in psychoanalysis. Some major paintings to be displayed are: “The False Mirror” (1928, above), “The Treachery of Images” (1929), and “Clairvoyance” (1936). The exhibit will open in New York on September 28.
