I went with some friends for breakfast at the excellent Tasty Table in Ossining, NY. While I was there I needed to use the rest room and in there I came across this lovely little cabinet with a number of little curios in it. So I took a picture.

It wasn’t until I got back and looked at it on the computer that I noticed that it wasn’t a cabinet at all, but rather a nice Trompe l’oeil painting. For anyone who may not be familiar with this term it’s French for “to deceive the eye”, an art historical tradition in which the artist fools us into thinking we’re looking at the real thing. Well it certainly fooled me.
