Le Bras Revelateur (1929)
Paul Nougé (1895–1967) was a Belgian poet, philosopher and surrealist photographer who heavily influenced the Belgian Surrealist School of which he was a member. He was a friend and associate of fellow artists Louis Scutenaire, Marcel Mariën and René Magritte – whom he was a major influence upon.
In our time there are many artists who do something because it is new.. they see their value and their justification in this newness. They are deceiving themselves.. novelty is seldom the essential. This has to do with one thing only.. making a subject better from its intrinsic nature.
