dc.description.abstractAristotle claims that ‘the aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance’. The image depicted on the canvas is not an end in itself but the starting point of an intellectual and emotional engagement with its symbolical meaning; it is a point of departure not of arrival and the true significance lies in that which art itself obscures for, in the words of another great classical writer, this time Ovid, ‘Ars est celare artem.’en_GB
