    ePUB Siegfried Gohr ½ ePUB Magritte: Attempting the Impossible PDF/EPUB â ½ anglo saxon.co magritte: book, attempting pdf, impossible book, Magritte: Attempting book, Magritte: Attempting the Impossible PDFThis hefty monograph was written by one of the most brilliant post war German museum curators and art scholars and its publication coincides with the opening of the Magritte Museum in Brussels It is an interesting study that follows a strictly chronological pattern with an original angle each period is tackled through the in depth examination of one key emblematic work The Lost Jockey 1926 The Treachery of Images 1929 The Red Model 1935 The Dominion of Light 1954 etc This methodological choice makes for enlightening reading and undoubtedly renders the text livelier and easy to read and graspNow the colored illustrations are numerous and often full page but unfortunately the uality of the paper is mediocre and the pictures do not allow a glimpse into Magritte's techniue and brushwork The reproductions conseuently appear dull and flat which accounts for a three star rating
