16 December 2014Andre Cornut from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada: I view this work as Mankind's place in and view of the Universe.
The shadows of the 2 figures in the image from the glass covering are just reflections but I might say that the add to my interpretation of this work.
One figure is viewing the Universe while the other is surrounded by the Universe. : )
03 November 2014Moira from Pasadena, CA: I have in fact visited the Norton Simon to view this piece, and the man in the corner is most likely a reflection on the frame, as there is no shadow man present.
15 October 2011Derrick Anderson from Dallas, Tx: Beautiful and complete
15 October 2011Derrick Anderson from Dallas, Tx: I have never seen this painting in person.. is the image of a man standing in the upper left quadrant part of the painting or is it a bleed in from a piece covered bythe artist started or is it an overlay of some type from the frames taken of this piece? This piece seems to be free and contolled this image is not somthing I would expect to see from an artist who is concentrating on forms that have allowed him to escape into out into another universe
