why we love it
This work is part of a series of four similar paintings, you can see Lovers II, which we like almost more than The Lovers in Moma, at the National Gallery of Australia.
Magritte did not like to have his works analyzed, he simply did them just for the sake of it, so each person could draw their own conclusions.
What there is no doubt is that The Lovers has served as an inspiration for many people, and fields such as art, fashion, cinema, or music.
This is just our small contribution, your curiosity can do the rest.
