And here is the creation by Belgium's famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte (1898-1967 ) of which I was reminded the moment I first noticed the album cover posted below. Les Amants (The Lovers) dates back to 1928. It is quite representative of his style, which relies on thought provoking ideas rather than brilliant execution. Many of his works are witty and highly original, including one of my favourites, the mermaid on the beach - where he turns the accepted half fish half woman convention upside down. The famous pipe on the other hand (Ceci n'est pas un pipe) may be sophisticated from a philosophy point of view, but has no charm whatsoever.
