Magritte's style was very realistic, with sharp lines and crisp edges. In his paintings, he tends to take two or more ordinary objects that are not strange on any level. He then takes these two unrelated objects and paints them together, creating something surreal. The effect the paintings give us is of something strange or bizarre and this is illustrated well in 'Time Transfised'
Margitte says: "To be a surrealist... means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been."
