As beautiful as art can be, sometimes there is more to see than first meets the eye.
Some artists are known for hiding images within their paintings, or the art of camouflage.
Vincent Van Gogh is said to have hidden images within his works,
but there is some controversy about whether those images were placed intentionally by the artist,
or whether they are created in the imagination of the viewer.
However, present day artists can verify that they have placed hidden images within their paintings.
Two artists who are well known for their camouflage art are Bev Doolittle and Judy Larson.
