COVER | Rene Magritte
Le blanc-seing (freehand). Created after the 1965 original oil on canvas of the same title, this limited-edition color lithograph was published and printed by Philippe Moreno, Paris. This delightfully surprising scene exemplifies Magritte's clever style. A horse and a woman weave in and out of the striped background of trees and sky, playing with negative space and perspective, creating a fascinating and surreal world. See this work at Masterworks Fine Art in the Oakland hills established in 1973. Masterworks specializes in 16th- to 20th-century masters and has built an impressive collection, emphasizing not only rarity, demand, and salability, but also potential appreciation, historical context, and personal insight. See the collection online at www.MasterworksFineArt.com or contact the gallery at 510-777-9970; gallery visits are by appointment only.
