Sandro del Prete


This artist is on his way home, carrying his canvas over his shoulder. An attractive lady crosses the street. For most men, a discreet glance would seem a natural reaction. But is he staring at the beautiful girl, or is he just carrying the illustration of a landscape with a bridge? Note the double perspective at the bottom of the roll of parchment, as well as the little dog that is walking out of the scene, beyond the edge of the parchment roll.
