pixography:

René Magritte ~ “Le Beau Monde”, 1962

A remarkable example of Magritte’s mature painting, “Le beau monde" unites some of the best known elements of the artist’s iconography: the curtain, the apple and the sky, all depicted in a setting that is at once interior and exterior. The canvas is dominated by three monumental curtains, with an apple in front of them. Marking a recession towards the depth of the composition, these elements are placed on an unidentified plane, which could represent a stage set or a corner of a room. Through the use of curtains Magritte presents a juxtaposition of opposites – the paradox of concealing and revealing, and the contrast between the natural and the man-made, between interior and exterior settings. By confronting these contrasted elements, the artist evokes the essential surrealist paradigm of questioning the significance and purpose we attribute to various objects, and creating new meanings by placing these objects in new and unexpected contexts. <source>

All the main backgrounds from "Wasted Land" (a post apocalyptic pilot/short i’m working on about two kids trying to find yogurtland). With them all laid out in order you can see the color scheme transition from orange to blue over the course of the short.
