Question 722: Couldn't keep this doc away

Description of the painting by the artist __X__

At least it hides the face partly. Well, so you have the apparent face, the apple, hiding the visible but hidden, the face of the person. It's something that happens constantly. Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present
Made famous by the movie "The Thomas Crown Affair", this painting has been extensively parodied by apple maniacs.
