The old woman and the young woman

The old woman and the young woman

In the drawing of the old woman and the young woman, some of you will see an old Parisian woman and others a young woman like Toulousse-Lautrec. Look closely, because both are in the same frame.

What an observer sees in the first instance depends in part on past experience, knowledge and expectations.
