Somewhere In Belgium
A man in a bowler hat is seated on a park bench, in front of a statue of a man in a bowler hat. This painting contains numerous references to my favorite artist, Rene Magritte who created many paintings featuring a man in a bowler hat. The base of the statue reads, "HERE STANDS THE MAN" in Dutch and below that are Magritte's birth and death years. Lions and owls were both featured in several Magritte paintings and they show up here as statues. The night time sky contrasts with the daytime setting of the park area, combining night and day into one image.
