dc.description.abstractEnglish: Conjectures regarding portraits of the Fool as performative hyper-icons in the picaresque tradition initiate an investigation of canny performances of duplicity in pictures on display. The focus falls on performances of unexpected convolutions acted out by spectators while looking repeatedly at deceptive pictures. The emphasis is on the role of the eye in visual shaping and in iterated performance of rhetorical roles and on recurrent ocular motifs as typiconic features in the picaresque tradition.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Besinning oor Narreportrette as performatiewe hiperikone in die pikareske tradisie dien as prikkel van hierdie ondersoek na geslepenheid en valsheid in prente. Die fokus val op toeskouers wat opnuut en by herhaling bedrieglike voorstellings aanskou. Klem word gelê op die aandeel van die oog in die visuele vormgewing en herhaalde uitvoering van retoriese rolle en op herhalende oogmotiewe as tipikoniese kenmerke in die pikareske tradisie.af
