One thought on “Magic Eye

  1. 1970


    What a fascinating article. I wonder if there’s any chance that Richard Johnson was asked to look at the “newly discovered Rembrandt” the Portrait of a Young Gentleman. I don’t think it is a Rembrandt, and at least some actual experts don’t think so either. (My credentials are nothing other than an artist with a good eye – which I realise counts for nothing.) I’m just so curious and I’d love to hear that Mr. Johnson would analyse the painting.
