    Once again, so far, no work, by this artist, has appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog (if that changes, the first link will list them).

    A Woman with a Dog is shown, with an enlarged image, and described, by its current-location page (more under Notes in its OBJECT INFORMATION section, couldn’t find the pendant mentioned there).

    The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection.

    Oh, it wasn’t easy



    (actually, from the day before what I said was the start). Sorry ;-)

    Good thing Poncho wasn’t reading Bloom County in 1988, when the start of its current arc at GoComics was published, or has access to the internet as far as I know.

    Otherwise he’d be spraying Chazz’s head with deodorant made of cat sweat (click any of the 3 images to make it readable)

        

    instead. ;-)

    Sitting behind a desk all day — decided he needed some exercise.

    Once again, so far, this isn’t in the list of works, by this artist, in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Margaretha van Haexbergen (link shows her family tree) is shown, with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, and described, by its current-location page (3 other images can be accessed below the image there).

    A framed, different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here, and is shown in one page of an online book preview, along with a discussion of the artist’s technique (sadly the prior page is missing from the preview).

    He also painted this pendant of her husband (click for click-to-enlarge)


    found
    here, at around the same time.

    Oddly (to me anyway), that portrait was added to Mr. Melcher’s blog last Sunday; but, so far, this one hasn’t been. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated German Wikipedia page has more) and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    So far, 11 works, by this artist, have appeared here; 9 of those are among his 13 works (list link above), so far, that have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    Then you’re better at using a knife and fork than I am.

    … worthless as a Mick Jaggar solo album — now that’s cold. ;-)

    I do that by hand with the uncooked spaghetti before tossing it in the boiling water — never have to handle the cooked spaghetti that way.

    Once again, so far, no work, by this artist, has appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog (if that changes, the first link will list them).

    David with the Head of Goliath (links show their Wikipedia pages) is shown, with a different coloration, interactively enlargeable image, and described, by its current-location page.

    The artist also painted the very similar (slightly different Goliath head, click for click-to-enlarge)


    found here (has location and other info). The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated Italian Wikipedia page has more) and collection.
