Since its establishment in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York has been heralded as one of the most influential modern art museums in the world, with highly famed pieces from the likes of Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dali and Claude Monet, just to name a few, to have been exhibited there.
MoMA’s Magritte exhibition was the first of its kind to exclusively focus on the breakthrough of Belgian painter, Rene Magritte’s, Surrealist years. Magritte led the Surrealist movement in the 20s, creating some of the 20th century’s most beloved images, six of which have been captured in this Plate Set.
Featuring reproductions of some of Magritte’s most famous Surrealist paintings including The Smile of the Devil, This Is Not An Apple, and more, these plates have been made from durable and dishwasher-safe melamine, so you can appreciate these iconic works when dining both outdoors and indoors.
With all proceeds from MoMA products sold going directly back into the museum’s programs, you will have a hand in preserving history, while enjoying these pieces of functional art, for many more years to come.
