Magritte paintings were influenced by many styles: Impressionism: Using, quick brush strokes light and colour to show moments in time Cubism: Objects are broken up, analyzed, and re-assembled in an abstract form Futurism: Dislike of the things in the past and admiration of the future Fauvism: Using colours, often non naturalistic to express feelings Pop: Attention upon familiar images of popular culture. Minimalist: Reducing art to the minimum number of colours, shapes, lines, textures. Conceptual: The idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. Magritte’s paintings shows ordinary objects in an unusual situation, which gives new meaning to familiar things. Wikipedia
