Lighting, by Malcolm Rippeth, shows off everything to utmost advantage. At one point, as the Countess contemplates an abstract picture hanging on the wall, an unseen light source casts her silhouette across the canvas. The result is that she is looking at her painting and her shadow at the same time, in the same place. Art and life are again interfused.
