Musicon the empire of light l empire des lumi res by ren magritte
The Empire of Light (French: L'Empire des lumières) is a series of oil on canvas paintings by René Magritte painted between 1953 and 1954. They depict the paradoxical image of a nighttime street, lit only by a single street light, beneath a daytime sky. The paintings inspired a scene in the 1973 horror film The Exorcist, which was used on the film's posters and home video releases, in which the character Father Merrin stands in front of the MacNeil family's house., It also inspired the artwork for the cover of Jackson Browne's 1974 album, Late for the Sky.
