Son of Man by Rene Magritte

Son of Man by Rene Magritte

The most famous work of Magritte, who love to print on the cover of a textbook on social studies.

Magritte painted this picture as a self-portrait. But since each of his paintings is more of a philosophical parable, and not just a beautiful drawing, each viewer interprets “the Son of man differently”.

The most common explanation is this: we have a modern descendant of Adam. And the apple symbolizes the temptations that continue to pursue a person in the modern world.
