Granddad’s slippers and granddaughter’s booties. decorated with acrylic paints as Rene Magritte 1935 The Red Model shoes.
College project 1999. see next image as well for inspiration.
Magritte’s The Red Model itself became a model through its use as a cover for the second edition of Andre Breton’s Le Surrealisme et la Peinture. In 1945 Duchamp and Donati collaborated on a window display promoting the book at Brentano’s, the New York bookstore. They reproduced the shoes in emulation of Magritte.
