"Les titres des tableaux ne sont pas des explications et les tableaux ne sont pas des illustrations des titres. La relation entre le titre et le tableau est poétique, c'est-à-dire que cette relation ne retient des objets que certaines de leurs caractéristiques habituellement ignorées par la conscience, mais parfois pressenties à l'occasion d'événements extraordinaires que la raison n'est point encore parvenue à élucider".René Magritte
