This depiction of a man in a bowler hat, his face obscured by a green apple, is one of the most iconic Surrealist images. Created by René Magritte in 1964, the work is imbued with muted emotion, layered meaning, and timeless appeal. One of the dominant figures of Surrealism, Magritte's eminence has only grown since his death; the Tate Liverpool staged a major retrospective of the artist's work in the summer of 2011.
