A fun article in The New Yorker’s Cartoon section revived this in light of the MOMA’s Magritte Exhibition, which closed on Sunday.

The original was painted in 1964:


“Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It’s something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides some other thing yet we still want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is always some sort of interest in what is hidden and what the visible does not show us.’’

René Magritte
