This Limoges porcelain plate is based on work of the surrealist painting of Magritte representing his self portrait, The Schoolmaster”. © Fondation Magritte / C. Herscovici Le maitre d’ecole” (1954)
From the age of 12, Magritte took painting classes from a local school master, and developed a passion for the films of the arch-criminal Fantà´mas as well as an avid taste for Edgar Allan Poe and Maurice Leblanc.
Magritte was a painter of ideas; a painter of visible thoughts, rather than of subjects. He valued neither lyrical nor the abstraction. He described his paintings saying, My painting is visible images which conceal nothing; they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, “˜What does that mean?’ It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing, it is unknowable.”
