Subject: innocence to lying
Priority: normal

OK my wonderful friends,

You were such a big help in suggesting artists and images for the
subject of innocence . . . can you help me think of art images
and/or artists who have dealt with the theme of lying? I'm drawing a
blank except for Grant Wood's "Parson Weem's Fable."

My quest is in relation to an assignment I gave to my freshment level
Drawing 1 class to search and build a visual and verbal vocabulary
for a specific theme.

Thanks for your help,

Hi, Jeff:

Is deception close enough to lying? If so, how about
Caravaggio's "Cardsharps" and Georges de La Tours' "Cheat with
the Ace of Clubs'?
