    Yet another artist that used the wrong f-stop on his paintings.

    Bartholomew felt the painting would prove his point once and for all. He did wear the outfit better than his wife.

    When chrysanthemums grow from your head/

    Long before you are even dead,/

    And grow right through your hat,/

    There’s a reason for that:/

    You are probably overly bred…///

    Like “ ‘mums”, Hapsburgs are “hothouse fruits”/

    Though “The lip” makes them unsightly brutes./

    It is painfully plain/

    The Imperial strain/

    Is now bred to pointless pursuits./

    For centuries, born to rule/

    Now mostly they sit and drool/

    And this strange-looking chap/

    In the curious cap/

    Is flapping pompoms like a fool.///

    An infusion of peasant genes/

    Might enliven these Royal “has-beens”/

    Generations (like, dozens !)/

    Of breeding with cousins/

    Produces some very strange scenes…

    He knew folks were whispering about his outfit, but he stood proud, mainly because no one would ever know about the thong underneath it all.

    George Sanders was not really a bad actor in period pieces. He was just incredibly boring!

    When you want to become a household name like Francisco Goya, but completely misunderstand the meaning of “going through a dark period”.

    Emperor Charles VI

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:Portrait paintings of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor" Wikimedia 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Ecosia and Yandex search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found and once there find the text string 11234, and click its link for info and links that point to more info (perhaps best viewed using Google Chrome, which can translate most webpages if necessary) about this roughly life size painting.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3178 (August 28, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger, if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. Only work by him used here so far.
