    The Empress wonders if “nude leapfrog” wouldn’t be more entertaining.

    Even zoomed to the max, I’m still getting a postage stamp. Can’t see what it is.

    When The Golden Girls were talking about whether they’d ever walked in on their parents in the act, Rose said, “Oh, I thought I did once – but they were just playing leapfrog!”

    Enlarged image can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    The Reception of Siamese Ambassadors by Emperor Napoleon III (1808-73) at the Palace of Fontainebleau, 27 June 1861 (links show Wikipedia pages) is shown, with a different coloration image, and described (Google translation), by its current-location.

    To see its webpage and different coloration image:

    1. put MV 5004 in the Rechercher box,

    (though not necessary, but also changing Tous les critères to Nº d’inventaire, in the box drop-down menu first, will confine the search to that painting)
    2. click Voir la fiche under the correct image, to see its webpage, and

    3. click the image there to better see the image (can be interactively enlarged).
    Chrome can automatically translate; but, since things aren’t at a static location, Google, or Bing can’t be used.
    A larger, similar-to-this coloration image can be found here. The artist/teacher’s Wikipedia page (Google translated French Wikipedia page has more) and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    Ninth, of the 14 works (15 times, so proud of one pseudo-title, he used it again), by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    The Thai (Siamese) king in 1861 was Mongkut (the king in “Anna and the King of Siam”). At that time, with the British closing in on the west and the French taking over countries to the east, this wise king made nonaggression pacts with both countries, thus saving his country from becoming a European colony. Also at this time, Mongkut, an admirer of Abraham Lincoln, offered to send war elephants to our president to assist the federal forces in the Civil War. Lincoln graciously turned down the offer and gently explained to King Mongkut (Rama IV) why this wouldn’t be practical in this country. Mongkut’s son, and successor, Chulalongkorn (Rama V) put an end to the practice of “crouching like toads” before the king. “Thailand” means “Land of the free,” and the present king was born in Massachusetts while his father attended Harvard.
