Cornelius Norbertus Gijsbrechts (c. 1610 - after 1675), Trompe l'oeil. The Reverse of a Framed Painting, 1670./ With the absence of the frame that traditionally serves as the architectural transition between the spectator’s reality and the picture’s painted universe, this work by the Flemish painter Gijsbrechts is moving beyond the usual realms of art and into the illusionistic domains of the stage.
