Le Bouquet tout fait, 1957 is another of Magritte's paintings depicting a man wearing a bowler-hat. Unlike The Son of Man, 1964 and L'Homme au Chapeau Melon, the man is this painting is facing away from us.

Of course the most striking thing about this artwork is the woman that appears superimposed on the center of the image. The woman is a near identical reproduction of Flora (the goddess of spring, who is scattering roses) from the masterpiece La Primavera by Sandro Botticelli. Look at what the man is looking at, a lush green forest in spring bloom.

Seperating the man from the forest is a balncy stone railing; it is a barrier.

This forest is similar to the forest that appears in Magritte's painting Le Blanc-Seing

Magritte's image of a man in a bowler hat is a recurring theme that reappears in several of his pictures:
