Unit price per

Unexamined out of frame, apparently in fine condition. Framed to 31 x 24 inches (78.7 x 61 cm.).
The green apple became Magritte's most recognizable motif, recurring in a number of his paintings, most famously in his self-portrait Le fils de l'homme, in which Magritte dons a bowler hat and an apple floats in space, obscuring the center of his face.
