René Magritte was one of, if not the most well-known surrealism artist. His works are typically thought-provoking and aims to push his audience to question their perception of reality. The Son of Man is a self-portrait of Magritte, with his face masked by a green apple. The iconic green apple is often portrayed in other paintings by Magritte as well.
René Magritte believes that the mind constantly craves the image that is visibly hidden, to the point where the audience’s curiosity could take the form of an intense feeling of conflict; between what is shown and that which is hidden.
