Jack Trolove, who sees through things

A couple of hundred years ago, the confidence to paint what was seen but unseen garnered ridicule for the Impressionists and Expressionists. With time, viewers began to understand that these artists were not seeing things as they were on the surface; they were seeing more than what was on the surface. Like Giotto and Duccio, who discovered if they applied paint to canvas in a certain order it made things look three-dimensional, the Impressionists realised that water was not a solid blue surface and the Expressionists realised that sometimes you are so morose, everything turns blue.
