FINAL PAPER TOPIC

What is the painting on the following page a painting of? What does it represent?

What is it about?

What does it mean to write across a painting of a pipe "This is not a pipe?"

Does the painting harbor a view about the nature of representation?

Is there a way to interpret the painting so that its apparent paradoxical character can be made to disappear? Or perhaps it is not paradoxical?

What do you think?
