A succession of perspective views through doorways into rooms is a striking example of this Dutch artist known for trompe l'oeil effects. The artist draws the viewer through an archway, above which hangs a birdcage into a staircase hall in which appear a dog and cat, and on into two further rooms where a man and woman sit.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
