Le Modele Rouge (translation: "The Red Model") depicts feet that morph into lace-up shoes.

Magritte explained painting's imagery in a 1938 lecture: "The problem of the shoes demonstrates how far the most barbaric things can, through force of habit, come to be considered quite respectable," adding that thanks to the picture, "people can feel that the union of a human foot with a leather shoe is, in fact, a monstrous custom."

Size: 56 x 46 cm. Gallery: Musée National d'Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France.
