This lot consists of a HAND SIGNED and Numbered fine art print on paper, hand signed 'Magritte' and numbered '20/200'. Image depicts the pale nude figure of a deceased woman who is bleeding gruesomely from her mouth. She lays, almost comfortably, on a red settee, while six men in formal attire fill the barren space around her. Three men peer in through an open window. Two linger at the doorway of the room, holding nets and clubs. The sixth man, a dapper gentleman, has taken off his hat and coat, set his suitcase down, and has calmly paused to adjust a looming Victrola player. A haunting scene that seems at once controlled and utterly fantastical. Done in the neat, provocative Modern Art style of Surrealist Rene Magritte (Belgian, 1898-1967). Overall excellent condition. Image is depressed into the paper indicating plate marks. Measures approximately 8.5" x 11.5".
Overall: 8.5"H x 11.5"W
