Young Woman Playing the Lute

Young Woman Playing the Lute (c 1626), by Orazio Gentileschi is typical of the source material Charles Green and Lyndell Brown refer to before synthesising their images and the fragmented narrative beneath those images. This painting is referenced in Olive's The Painter's Family. Decoding all Superfictionsrequires that one become something of a detective. Indeed, Synthetic Modernism itself is what Sherlock Holmes would call "a three pipe problem". The first pipe gives us the thesis - modernism. The second gives us the antithesis - post-modernism, and the third the synthesis, Synthetic Modernism. As Umberto Eco wrote in his Reflections on the Name of the Rose , "The crime novel represents a kind of conjecture, pure and simple." see Sir Karl Popper Conjectures and Refutations., The Painter's Family, Charles Green and Lyndell Brown
