- One of Magritte's most common artistic devices was the use of objects to hide what lies behind. ... In The Human Condition, the cover-up appears in the form a painting within a painting.
- Magritte had this to say of his 1933 work:
- In front of a window seen from inside a room, I placed a painting representing exactly that portion of the landscape covered by the painting. Thus, the tree in the picture hid the tree behind it, outside the room. For the spectator, it was both inside the room within the painting and outside in the real landscape.
