Rene Magritte: Untitled

I chose this painting by Rene Magritte mainly due to being a fan of surrealism. I had remembered seeing Magritte’s paintings in the past, specifically the piece called “Philosopher’s Lamp,” and enjoyed the oddities that came along with the paintings. Albeit the painting I had chosen is untitled, it had stood out to me among the surplus of Magritte’s work. It appears the individual presented in this painting is starting his day deciding whether to be sad or happy, regardless of what the he is truly feeling. Some say this painting applies with how we all put on masks in the social construction of reality.
