Artemisia
Artemisia DVD - 1997 | French

He's too long. It looks ridiculous.

A girl who paints? What courage, to try painting yourself. But it's a lost cause! Who is talented enough to render such beauty?

You've always painted your subjects from up close. But the world is vast. Relations between things are more complex. The frame gives order to our vision of the landscape. Cutting up the canvas like this... gives us the exact relations. Look how many faraway things... are contained in the squares above... and how few things are in those below.
