René François Ghislain Magritte: The Blank Signature

This painting is called The Blank Signature which is a poor translation of the French "La Carte Blanche" the name of the painting in French. The artist is René François Ghislain Magritte. Here is a short introduction to Magritte from the Wikipedia.
René François Ghislain Magritte (French: [ʁəne fʁɑ̃swa ɡilɛ̃ maɡʁit]; 21 November 1898 – 15 August 1967) was a Belgian surrealist artist. He became well known for creating a number of witty and thought-provoking images. Often depicting ordinary objects in an unusual context, his work is known for challenging observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality. His imagery has influenced pop, minimalist and conceptual art.
 Some of my photographs are also optical illusions.  For example, The Endless Escalator published on March 28, 2018.
