Hm, I am interested in the title that you write, that the camera sometimes lies. This becomes the verdict that landed on some people. Those who hate the camera.

Wow. It is interesting to have the letter point out the inconsistencies of what we see in the photo and get a true understanding for what took place. Archival material really helps to paint the true history of art. I wonder what would have been done if there was photoshop back in the day. Thanks Jonathan and Cheers.

I was also attracted by the title of the article. It is true that the photo and the images in general, can (to a certain point of view) lie. It is a vast subject and the information in the article are usefully illustrate one of many points that cover this topic ...
In addition, it is clear that the correspondence exchanged by mail is an important element in the history of art ... but also made ​​history in general (this is the case in science, politics ...).

The fact that the scene is "contrived" doesn't bother me. From one point of view, nearly all art, and interior design for that matter, is utterly contrived.

The trick, in most cases, is to contrive it so completely that it doesn't FEEL contrived. It seems this photo passed the test.
