In his writing on the Surrealist Magritte, Foucault explored the impact of avant-garde “word and image paintings” in the history of twentieth century painting. He proposed that the circulating similitudes initiated by and proposed in The Treachery of Images (1928) were fulfilled in contemporary series painting, such as the Campbell’s soup cans by the Pop artist Andy Warhol.
