During interviews that Marcel Duchamp grant in 1960 to Georges Charbonnier, it tells us that the work is as created by the Viewer by the artist, for his part unable to estimate the aesthetic result and the intrinsic value of his work.
Work engaged in this sense by the use of text rather than image address a signal trigger to the visitor, gave him intuition of what he sees, the Assembly of a lime job faced with the stiffness of steel contributes to exacerbate the reflection the viewer about the past and the present, humans as the work being the sum of the years, it's time or the reason gets to see.
If we consider the work as subjective reality, the question of creation is reversed, the viewer becoming a creator and a shared utopia the work.
If the aesthetic emotion is delayed, the creation and the “mimesie” is raised by this reversal. Delacroix shows us that a work condenses one emotion that the viewer needs to relive or evolve.
