What is the difference between "sehen” and “ansehen"?

Sehen simply means “to see” while ansehen would translate “to look at”.

The latter has a direction, an intend which the former lacks.

I see you in the bakery - ich sehe dich in der Bäckerei.

I look at the painting in the museum - ich sehe mir das Gemälde im Museum an.
