Magritte (botas/Le modèle rouge)

 Le modèle rouge, 1935, CNAC Pompidou

The problem of the shoes demonstrates how far the most barbaric things can, through force of habit, come to be considered quite respectable. Thanks to "Modèle rouge," people can feel that the union of a human foot with a leather shoe is, in fact, a monstrous custom. R. Magritte, 1938.
