This week’s Friday Favorite comes from our associate curator of education Lucy Stewart, who requested René Magritte’s Le coeur du monde (The Heart of the World). Lucy told us why this piece has special significance to her:
René Magritte, René Magritte’s Le coeur du monde (The Heart of the World)
I love Magritte’s The Heart of the World. It was one of the first works of art I remember seeing as a child that made me feel wonder. When we came to visit the museum, I would always find the Magritte first and just stare at it, seeing new things each time. It ignited my love of art, and it still fills me with wonder.
