    Of course…..got to die happy (I mean clean). I expect it’s a nice rough sponge, too.

    Conversation between my ex-boss and his 15-year-old daughter about him always giving her ‘advice’:

    Him: “Socrates was a wise man. He gave his friends advice.”
    Her: “Yeah, and they poisoned him.”

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here (hence superseded by this different coloration, click-to-enlarge image found here), or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    The Death of Socrates (link shows Wikipedia page with a section on the painting) is shown, with a different coloration image, and described, by its current-location page (click image there for interactive enlargement; for more info, expand Catalogue Entry, and other topics below it).

    One of the other images there, is discussed here; couldn’t find a reference for the other (detail) image (of Crito). 3 detail images of this painting, here, here, and here, can be found on the alternate page.

    This provides a description of it, along with another different coloration image. This concentrates more on the artistic elements of the painting, as does this.

    It is also described here, along with a different coloration, click-to-enlarge image. A larger museum color, click-to-enlarge image, can be found here. Many different coloration, or detail images of it are available online.

    This description embeds a YouTube video about the painting; another YouTube video about it can be found here. The artist’s Wikipedia page and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    Third, of the 6 works, by this artist/teacher, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
