๐Ÿโ˜๐ŸŽจ Today we celebrate Renรฉ Magritte. The surrealist Belgian painter was born on this day in 1898. Clouds, pipes, umbrellas, and hats are some of the most immediately recognizable objects associated with his artwork that is on view in all major museums in the US. This painting is called The Human Condition (1933) and is on display at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC (East Building).

Two of Magritte's favored themes were the "window painting" and the "painting within a painting." The Human Condition is one of Magritte's earliest treatments of either subject, and in this work he combines the two. With his pictorial and linguistic associations, Magritte made everyday objects disturbing and strange, posing questions about the nature of representation and reality.

โ„น๐Ÿ“ท www.nga.gov/collection/art-object-page.70170.html

Magritte's first solo exhibition in the United States took place in New York in 1936. He was represented as well in the 1936 Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

There are 2 museums dedicated to Magritte in Brussels:

๐Ÿ Magritteโ€™s house in Jette is home to mainly biographical items: www.magrittemuseum.be
๐Ÿ A large Magritte Museum is located in the centre of Brussels with many artworks: www.fine-arts-museum.be/en/museums

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington is always guarded. The Unknown Soldiers represent all missing and unknown service members who served and did the sacrifice to protect our freedom.

After WWI, several nations officially began the process of selecting one of their fallen to represent all the unidentified dead. In Belgium, the Unknown Soldier was chosen by a blinded war veteran Renold Haesebrouck, and was laid at the base of the Congress Column in Brussels on November 11, 1922.

The Unknown Soldiers represent all missing and unknown service members who served and did the sacrifice to protect our freedom. After WWI, several nations officially began the process of selecting one of their fallen to represent all the unidentified dead. In Belgium, the Unknown Soldier was chosen by a blinded war veteran Renold Haesebrouck, and was laid at the base of the Congress Column in Brussels on November 11, 1922.
