Monarchie-Monchhichi-Monarchichi (2011)

Monarchie-Monchhichi-Monarchichi (above), published in Her Royal Majesty — A Paris-based literary arts magazine , Nov. 1, 2011.  HRM is an international literary and arts review edited, designed and defined by a collection of writers and artists living in Paris.  The thematic for issue 11: Doubles.

While reading Language of Art by Nelson Goodman, I came across a description which I thought worked well with the image. Here it is below. I have replaced the Duke and the Duchess of Wellington for the Prince and Princess of Wales.

What a picture is said to represent may be denoted by the picture as a whole or by a part of it. Likewise, a picture may be a soandso-picture as a whole or merely thought containing a soandso-picture. Consider an ordinary portrait of the Prince and Princess of Wales. The picture (as a whole) denotes the couple, and (in part) denotes the Prince. Furthermore, it is (as a whole) a two-person-picture, and (in part) a man-picture. The picture represents the Prince and the Princess as two persons, and represents the Prince as a man. But although it represents the Prince, and is a two-person-picture, it obviously does not represent the Prince as two-persons; and although it represents two-persons and is a man-picture, it does not represent the two as a man. For the picture neither is nor contains any picture that as a whole both represents the Prince and is a two-man-picture, or that as a whole both represents two persons and is a man-picture.
