Magritte is the best known Surrealist next to Dalí. Of course, as you can see, he experimented masterfully in a variety of styles, such as Cubism and Fauvism. Magritte thought of his works as "visible images which conceal nothing. They evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, 'What does that mean?' It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable."
