“us, standing right there – are as if invisible or at least irrelevant, occupying no important presence in the subject’s vacant or bemused look. This absence of even the possibility of mutuality (between the subject of the painting and the beholder) suggested by this invisibility or irrelevance – not its simple failure, not just misrecognition (and the air of unmistakable unease that this creates) – is what helps to suggest the incomplete and fragmentary atmosphere in many of the paintings. – Pippin” – http://ift.tt/1YAwzFu
