    So much concern over something so small.

    If you were facing a nine-foot giant, as Cracked rightly pointed out, you might want to run away and hide as well.

    My favorite painting is the one on velvet with the dogs playing poker. The one of Elvis runs a close second.

    to Clark Kent
    Guernica was painted because of the bombing of Guernica, Spain by the forces of General Franco.
    You just taught me he was German… Had the quote been right, it would have been excellent.

    My Fav is “The Night Watch”.
    Saw it when I was 14 in 1966. Must have sat there staring at it for a good hour.
    Saw lots of art those 3 months in Europe but that one taught me how to look at light when doing photography.

    Used to eat at this Salvadorean place. Along with the best food they had a fantastic velvet painting of a bandito complete with bandoliers and a glowing cigarette hanging between his slightly smiling lips. Only velvet I’ve ever liked.

    Among MY favorites, which I’m certain you all want to hear, are “A black-tailed godwit”, by Pieter Holsteyn the Younger,
    Dutch, c. 1614 – 1687, “The Wool Winders”, by Lady Laura Alma-Tadema, British, 1852 -1909, and “Le Chasseur”, attributed to Pierre Andrieu, French, 1821 – 1892.
    (Actually, I’m just trying to get MY brag in also. My real favorite is the same as rpmurray – any of the dogs playing poker on velvet. However, I must say I find the Elvis on velvet to now be hopelessly déclassé.

    David was lucky. On a visit to Museeisland in Berlin, I iscovered a rotunda at the back (reassembled after being knocked around a bit in WW2, like everything else). It was used to store old nude statues. There were no bulletholes and shellspinters in them, so they’d probably been in storage somewhere during the war years. But what they DID have, without exception, was that the penisies had been chisselled off and a deep circular hole had been drilled neatly in the same place, perhaps as a mounting-point for a fig leaf. David seeems to ave been spared all that!
