The False Mirror by Rene Magritte

The False Mirror by Rene Magritte is an oil on canvas kept in New York City at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). This painting was made in Paris, France and was completed in 1928. This painting was made to give each person looking at it the chance to visualize and to think about what this painting can mean to them. This painting can mean many different things depending on who is looking at it, there is no wrong or right way of looking at this picture. When i first saw this painting at the MOMA it really caught my attention, i thought it was very creative and a great way to get people thinking. In my opinion the eye is looking out at the world as the person whom the eye belongs to sees it, what Magritte was trying to do was get us to think about how the world is seen threw our eyes.
