Share this product!

A black top hat was a familiar attribute of bourgeois men in the early twentieth century. Famous Surrealist artist René Magritte also wore one, and his depictions of a man wearing a top hat were sometimes self-portraits. Over the years, the top hat became a hallmark of his paintings and an icon in its own right. 

In Magritte’s painting The Handsome Brooder (1950), the anthropomorphized top hat sits on a windowsill facing high mountains. Here, Magritte juxtaposes the hat with another image that appears in many of his works: the pawn. The dreamy painting lends the watch a suggestive, contemplative character – the perfect gift for yourself or for a loved one. 


The painting was gifted to the Museum by Ruth Moskin Fineshriber, Los Angeles, through the America-Israel Cultural Foundation
