About this artwork

'Threatening Weather' was painted during the summer of 1929 while Magritte was staying with Dalí near Cadaqués, in Spain. This painting is a perfect example of Magritte's use of familiar objects in an unexpected manner. The three objects float like clouds over the sea, in a way that suggests the scene is both natural and unnatural. They bear all the hallmarks of a dream image, both unsettling and erotic.
