in detail

With its blend of mystery, truth and illusion, the mirror is a complex object. An emblematic adjunct in paintings imitating reality or seeking to provide different points of view, it is also the indispensable accessory for the painter engaged in a self-portrait. The perfect imitator, deceiver, revealer, object of cogitation, of image within image, and even of divination, the reflection in a mirror is never unambiguous.
