The woman in this photo talks to her husband. She points out lines and shapes and shares minute details about Escher’s youth. Her husband is paying attention but seems not to be listening at all. He feigns interest. His body language shows boredom and impatience. He doesn’t walk away, out of what I assume is respect for his wife. There is a sense that he wants a quiet moment to contemplate the art and form his own opinion, but he doesn’t get one and probably hasn’t in years.
