While ago, one of our anonymous visitors pointed out this illusion made by Roy Lichtenstein, Called “Sculpture & Drawings”. The sculpture House is 113 x 127 x 156 inches and is made of painted fiberglass. It hangs on the wall, and when viewing the sculpture in person, an optical illusion occurs – it appears to be convex but it is concave. There are more pictures in this post to serve as evidence.

Convex Or Concave? That is The Question!
