I am looking for a self-portrait by probably a late Renaissance painter called something like Illusionist or Magician or . . .which has the artist painting - pointing his brush at the viewer to the right. It has green background with a boy standing by his side - it is about what we see and don't see the pictures that are created for us (among other things).
I desperately need it for a class where it appears in a video.
Anyone any clues from such crap description ?
bump - as it is getting late at night and I am trying to find it before I go to bed
You can take a frame from the video, save that as an image, then use TinEye Reverse Image Search to find the image and similar images throughout the Internet.
Ah well - I give in ! and off to bed without it. thanks for help
ah, look what I found. this sounds like the painting, but it is by Charles Willson Peale, an American artist. It is from The Staircase Group.
a painting of his sons, Titian and Raphael. is this it?
here is the source site

No unfortunately - it is maybe late Renaissance by one of the biggies of hte period and it shows the artist painting himself - as though he is painting the other side of a mirror, or on glass where we stand this side of it - to his right is a boy, who he is painting on the canvas we cannot see. Please give in now as I have to go to bed and will feel guilty if you stay up all night
Thanks also WE - I may come back to find out how to capture a video frame another day
I think there was a Dutch painter who did this but it also involves mirrors where, as you said, it's about what we see and what we don't see.
I have not heard of him, but he was also referred to as The Renaissance Man. on the source site, the description of the painting sounds like what china man is referring to.
Its high degree of detail and finish shows that the painting was clearly intended to be a trompe l'oeil "deception," an effect that Peale never attempted elsewhere. To enhance the illusion, he installed the painting within a doorframe in his studio, with a real step in front. Rembrandt Peale, another son, recalled that his father's friend George Washington, misled by Peale's artifice, tipped his hat and greeted the two young men as he walked by.
hope this helps china man.
oh, ok, well it was fun searching. I found a new artist.
go to bed china man.

I have this bad habit of hitting publish instead of save unpublished when I'm writing a new article and am in a hurry. I just did it with a new Hemingway article that had the title, meta description and one picture - no text! Thank goodness for unpublish!

Wondering where we stand with regard to a new accolade for having more than 5 EC hubs or even a way for people to see this special distinction publicly on our hubs. Right now, we are the only ones who can see it - on our account statistics. I'm tempted to opt out at this point. Is there anyone else...
