In this surreal picture book Klaas Verplancke introduces René Magritte as a painter short of subjects. The illustrations show the painter lying awake surrounded by walls covered in empty frames. Magritte is not interested in the depiction of reality; it makes him fall asleep. But in his dreams the ideas keep coming.
‘Magritte’s Apple’ is a successful introduction to the richly nuanced oeuvre of the Belgian artist, which at the same time invites you to explore further. For children from 5 and up.
