But Abelardo Morrell's Diirer Painting, 1995, and The Coliseum by Piranesi, 1995, which might have looked unremarkable elsewhere, revealed a clever understanding of the collusion/opposition between a single framed picture and consecutively bound illustrations, folding and tilting multiple pages of illustrated books so that they might be captured within the unified picture plane of the photograph.
