Train Crossing

Time Tranfixed, 1938 by René Magritte, Art Institute of Chicago.

The world of dreams that came out of Surrealist paintings is presented by Magritte in a straightforward and clear manner. This allows the viewer to concentrate on the image and what it means rather than looking at the image and spending time figuring out what it is, what it is is immediately evident - so that leaves, what does it mean.
