There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
We often describe painters as bringing the subjects of their paintings 'to life,' a human reaction to some level of visual realism of a depicted object or being.
Is this effect simply an illusion? A result of successful trompe l'oeil? Perhaps it is more: trompe l'âme instead. There are many things in heaven and earth waiting to be perceived, described, rounded out and 'brought to life."
