Just like GNAY, Magritte liked a good title and this one really works for me. In fact this painting is more title than picture. You don’t see the word treachery that much any more, even though there is more of it now than when Rene painted this in 1929. If the painting doesn’t make you think, the title should – a surreal double whammy. I don’t read French but I assume it says something about smoking is bad for your health. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
