Modern trompe-l'il painting, this work creates an optical illusion of the lid of a suitcase reflecting the artist's face. Rob Møhlmann owns his own museum in Appingedam (Groningen). Considered a realist, the artist himself states: "pure realism never existed in painting, nor exists now or will ever exist because it is impossible from its very nature".
