Last Words of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Eugène Delacroix (1798 - 1863)
There's something about the inner levels of photographs that may capture the living moment of an image. You may see the expression of the people, the ambience of the day, the mood of the moment, but when the photographs of our mind is trasferred on a canvas and with this includes the interpretation of the artist, things start to be different. You then experience a certain kind of qualia with the artist's point of view, emotion, and experience. And if you can trust your own feelings, you can imagine how it is like to be in that moment, to be someone experiencing such a life and such a loss.
