Summary L'hypothese du tableau vole: A bumbling art collector attempts to reconstruct the content of a painting missing from a series of seven painted 100 years earlier by an eccentric artist. To help him in his task, a group of actors pose as the figures in the paintings to create a series of human tableaux. The collector makes far-fetched thematic connections between the tableaux as a way to figure out what the missing artwork might look like while alluding to the scandals, mysteries, and conspiracies surrounding the paintings.
La vocation suspendue: A critical examination of the mysteries of the Catholic Church.
