A favorite work

My recent trip to Houston was filled with art and wonderful warm, friendly people.  I brought home a lot of images in my mind, but the work that continues to resonate for me is this, Rene Magritte's Mme. Recamier de David, 1967.  It was the crowning glory of the spectacular Magritte exhibition at the Menil Collection.  Magritte passed in 1967, and didn't live to see this beautiful piece, based on his painting of the same title, in bronze.
