Magritte likely borrowed the pipe motif from Le Corbusier's book Vers une architecture (), since he was an admirer of the architect and painter, but he may also have been inspired by a comical sign he knew in an art gallery, which read, "Ceci n'est pas de l'Art." The painting is the subject of a famous book-length analysis by Michel ality: Belgian. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My libraryMissing: Magritte.
