Educator Resource Packet: Time Transfixed by René Magritte


René Magritte

This well-known work depicts a steam train emerging from a fireplace. It is a classic example of René Magritte’s style—a realistic portrayal of items that seemingly do not belong together. A similar approach was taken by the French Surrealists. This teaching packet includes an essay, discussion questions, activity ideas, and a glossary.
