“Joy’s Delusions of Grandeur” — Image by kenne

We love René Magritte paintings, especially those that make use of white cotton clouds in a vibrant blue sky, like “Delusions of Grandeur II.”

During our recent visit to the J. Paul Getty Museum, I photographed Joy next to René Magritte’s bronze statue, “Delusions of Grandeur.” As we walked toward the statue, said, “That’s me at 30, 40 and 50!”

Magritte painted Delusions of Grandeur II in 1948, the bronze statue was done in 1967, the year of his death.
