Summary
"The purpose of this book, written in conjunction with the Magritte catalogue raisonné, is to look at the artist and his art in ways which lie outside the scope of that publication ... It discusses the long-term development of images and ideas' and it ventures opinions about events and patterns in the artist's life"--Page [7]
