Three painters from different generations philosophize about what the concept of art is all about. The oldest of you, a mysterious, inscrutable old man, tells in a secluded place about a hidden work, his perfect masterpiece, in which he is said to have succeeded in capturing the ideal image of a woman on canvas. Located in France of the XVII. Century, wrote Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850), the ingenious inventor of human comedy, this fable, which not only captivates through its contextual content, but also through the message hidden therein. The reader is drawn into the inner struggle of the aging painter Frenhofer and his striving to grasp the indescribable with his own hands by means of fantasy and love.
