False Documents and Other Illusions at Portland Art Museum

October 2010

False Documents and Other Illusions, looks at the various ways in which contemporary artists approach the idea of trompe l’oei, lillusion, or fooling the eye. It runs in conjunction with a traditional 19th-century trompe l’oeil painting show on view in another gallery called John Haberle: Master of Illusion.

The New York Times Special Edition will be included in the show.
