Hippolyte Arnoux. «Femmes, Fellahs puisant de l'eau près des pyramides — Caire»
Kelly Baum: It's true. The two men in The Conversation are standing in front of a mural that represents a man, probably a worker, with his fist raised; it is a painting within a painting, an image of an image. Golub very carefully triangulates the gazes between the three figures: each looks toward and usually just past the other. Their gazes just miss each other. There's a story to be told in the missed gazes, in the missed opportunities to see and communicate.
