Ser Jacopo: Picta Magritte Smooth Billiard with Silver (04) (L1)

Product Number: 002-171-1826

The Magritte "04", though distinctive in the sloping taper of its stem and slightly obtuse angle of transition, is one of the most classical shapes found in the Picta series. This may be because the painting it's drawn from, Magritte's Freedom of Mind, presents a simple and decidedly less surreal (albeit still charmingly odd) image: A classically beautiful, and largely naked woman staring off into the distance while gently cradling a briar pipe. Given the flights of symbolic fancy in some of Magritte's other work, it was in fact a relatively conservative composition. This particular example presents an especially fine flame grain across the forward face of the bowl.
