Rene Magritte is an artist whose works are really inspiring and differ from other artists. My favorite of his works is the artwork called "The Lovers". It is an oil painting, which shows two people kissing, and their heads are covered with veils. The room in the background seems quite dark, so it doesn't really capture the sight.

This painting shows the idea of love and domination. When looking at it, it gives a feeling of an intrigue.

It is really interesting how the simple painting can have that many meanings and represent different emotions, at the same time as basically telling the story of love. It is so unusual how Magritte represented intimacy and closeness between two people, but at the same time showed that they are actually unable to physically kiss, because they have veil in between.
