What is the painting on the following pages 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?

The paper should be about 7 pages in length, preferably type-written.

It is due at any time between now and Monday, May 13, at 4:30 PM in the Philosophy Department Main Office (RABB 305).
