About the Artwork

How could he recognize her? In order to know what she is, lenses are not enough. One needs judgment, and knowledge of the world, and that is what the poor fellow lacks.


¿Como ha de distinguirla? Para conocer lo que ella es no basta el anteojo; se necesita juicio y práctica d mundo y esto es precisamente lo que le falta al pobre caballero.
