Head in the Clouds

Rene Magritte and Holger TrülzschBelgian artist René Magritte toyed with perspective and reality, creating surreal works through real, ordinary settings and mundane objects. A common theme in Magritte’s work included the unsuspecting use and placement of clouds with an indistinguishable divide between grounded reality and fantastical skies. A Holger Trülzsch photograph of Veruschka from 1972 bears significant resemblance to Magritte’s 1946 work La magie noire.
