A pretty good tale!

A man stands in an art museum fascinated with an obscure painting. He is able to project himself into the painting to relive --- and hopefully correct --- history.

A little-known gallery houses the only known painting by a local artist. One recent viewer seems to have a particular interest in the picture and draws the curiosity of the security guard who, himself, seems fascinated by the picture... particularly when he begins to notice changes and the viewer, inside the picture.

I have to admit that the title did not make sense until the very end of the story. I'll admit that I thought that it was a pretty good tale and not completely expected.

This is a lot like one of the episodes of Rod Serling's Night Gallery pilot titled, "The Escape Route" where a Nazi fugitive seeks refuge in a painting of a fisherman.
