Black Magic is a captivating work in which a woman stands against a block of stone. The woman is no ordinary woman however as she is Magritte's model, muse, and wife, Georgette Berger. In this work, Georgette's upper body appears to be celestial, while her lower body remains earthly.

 

One interpretation of her split form is that as humans we often have our heads elsewhere while our bodies remain firmly rooted in reality. With her hand resting upon the stone, "one idea is that the stone is associated with an attachment to the earth" (Meuris, p. 76 1994). Perhaps the connectivity her body feels to the stone is what keeps her grounded, but with the gorgeous sprawling blue skyline against the calm sea in the background, her body must want to enjoy its perceived surroundings. This can be seen in the tilt of her body away from the stone, with her head looking out onto the side, as if there's a longing to be far from reality.

The most celebrated Belgian artist of the twentieth century, Rene Magritte has achieved great popular acclaim for his idiosyncratic approach to Surrealism. His imagery has influenced pop, minimalist and conceptual art. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality.   The illustrative quality of Magritte's pictures often results in a powerful paradox: images that are witty and beautiful in their clarity and simplicity, but which also provoke unsettling thoughts. They seem to declare that they hide no mystery, and yet they are also marvellously strange. Magrite's earliest paintings, were Impressionistic in style. The paintings he produced during the years 1918–1924 were influenced by Futurism and by the figurative Cubism.
