Original painting: Astronomer by Candlelight
by Gerrit Dou, Dutch, late 1650s.
This recreation of Astronomer by Candlelight removes the original astronomer from the image. A second alteration of the scene presents a reality in which the astronomer has succumbed to insanity, causing him to destroy his own work.
