The ways in which painters can manipulate light was brought vividly home to me a few years ago in the National Gallery in Washington, DC. I walked into a gallery at one end, and at the other end was hung Monet's painting "Woman with a Parasol - Madame Monet and Her Son" (http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=61379). I'd seen it in reproduction, but was not prepared for the impact of the real thing. The sky and the outlines of her dress just glowed. It was an amazing manipulation of my visual system by a master.
