Handcrafted resin figurine that reproduces the central motif of René Magritte´s masterpiece “The Son of Man”.
This work was commissioned by Harry Torczyner in the summer of 1963 and delivered to him in August 1964. He had asked Magritte to do a self-portrait in the spirit of self-portraits by two Flemish painters, Rubens, and Ensor, in which the artists wear hats.
The title of this work was founded by Irène Hamoir, a Belgian poet and an important member of the Belgian surrealist movement.
This figurine has been individually manufactured by highly trained experienced and skilled craftsmen.
Figurine dimensions : 10.5 cm x 13 cm x 5 cm
