My L.A. hotel was within walking distance of LACMA – the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Well, it was within walking distance for a tourist who thinks it’s okay to forgo the valet parking and engage in twenty minutes of mild exercise.
LACMA was well worth it for several reason, but most of all for Rene Magritte’s “The Treachery of Images (This Is Not a Pipe).” It was my first encounter with Magritte’s 1929 masterpiece and one of those surreal (so to speak) moments, as there wasn’t anyone else in the room. Just me and the not-pipe.
