What appear to be two mirrors hung in a corner so that they reflect the window opposite. Closer inspection reveals that only the right side is an actual mirror; the left side is a trompe-l’oeuil wall painting of a mirror frame with a reflection of the window opposite. The mirror on the right reflects a painting rather than reality. Framed 16” x 16” mirror, 16” x 16” oil on wall.Ellen Harvey
