Bullet pierced painting in Kubrick's "Lolita"
I tried to get from the TV a reproduction of the fatidic painting in Kubrick's "Lolita."
For (1975) "Barry Lyndon" the director did a great amount of research (Cf. "The viewer's eye never tires as it roams across delicate Gothic travery...balconis, and furniture cluttered with mechanical dolls and clocks. It is because of this Menzian commitment to artifice in the service of drama that Adam regards "Barry Lyndon" with mixed emotions. Director and designer pored over paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, William Hogarth, Joshua Reynolds, Jean Baptiste Chardin, and George Stubbs, often replicating specific canvasses for certain sequences, and fabricated single sets by synthesizing a number of stately British homes"... Architecture and Film - books.google.com.br/books?isbn=1568982070 Mark Lamster - 2000 ). The chaotic dècor of Pavor Manor is equally suggestive of some sort of method - although I cannot figure out what I'm missing out from its significant details.
