So you think you’re all artsy fartsy eh??

This picture was taken at the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin when i visited it last winter.

The Architect Thomas Albrecht quizzed us asking if we found something unusual in what we saw about this part of the interior, awed by the fact that we were talking to the great architect himself (who spent ten years of his life in this project), we didt find anything odd whatsoever.

Actually there is a visual illusion in this image, and it was pointed out to us by Albrecht.

Anyone out there with astute eyes want to take a guess and see what is wrong in this image?
