L'Explicaiton by René Magritte looks set to lead Sotheby's Surrealist Art sale, with a high auction estimate of £6,000,000. The picture shows a wine bottle that has turned into a giant carrot for reasons I can't really explain. Furthermore the world outside of the windows appears to doing something a bit strange, but you know what? It just works. It's a great picture. there's something about the familiar reflection on the bottle that slowly disappears as it turns into a carrot that just appeals to me. The auction is happening on the 3rd of February in London.
