Naumann and Ladislaw are fun.

We see Dorothea through two sets of eyes, one sees her as a beauty to be painted, the other as just Mrs. Casaubon. They even argue about interpretation, Naumann wishes to paint his Christian Antigone, Ladislaw doesn’t want much to do with her.

So even though we know Dorothea we see her, as everyone, as being very different people – we are seen this way: as multitudes.
