The Witches and Wizards Box

Art and magic go naturally together, hand-in-hand. The small figurines used for various rituals, the ancient drawings found in caves, or the primitive masks used for numerous celebrations, these are among the earliest examples of man’s use of visual
art to link the magical and the material.

In this box we look at some artists and art styles that were influenced by the mystical and the magical: antique book covers and the idea of spell books; Magritte and his surreal dream-like paintings; Louise Bourgeois and her mesmerising spiders’ webs; and at some magical animals, from Pablo Picasso’s owls to legendary dragons that appear in all cultures around the world, and in literature to this day.
