La valse des Monstres


Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be afraid of the night.

  • The Menaced Assassin (French: L’Assassin menacé) is a 1927 oil on canvas painting by Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte.

    The main subject of the painting, a blood-smeared nude woman, is seen lying on a couch. The assassin of the painting’s title, a well-dressed man, stands ready to leave, his coat and hat on a chair next to his bag. He is however delayed by the sound of music, and in an unhurriedly relaxed manner, listens to a gramophone. In the meantime, two men armed with club and net wait in the foyer to ensnare him, whilst three more men also watch from over the balcony.

    American film director David Lynch said this is one of his favourite paintings  of all time.
