    has the other, which sadly, my comment there disappeared in the January, 2017, transition (I guess its 22 hyperlinks and embedded video syntax made the comment too long). &?@#!#%&!

    Thought it said Tg on the shirts, and wondered what that meant; but, then I connected TB to the Turbo Basset title, and it made sense (OK, I’m old). Great work on another collaboration, NightHawks and StelBel!!

    Mary of Egypt

    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rene_Ravaut_-_1894.png 

    (best viewed by Google Chrome which can automatically translate, with Google Translate added to chrome://extensions/, most pages as necessary) has info and links that point to info about this painting (described in the French book pointed to by the References pointer I just added there).

     

    Perhaps those who read French can find more about this artist, in addition to what’s indirectly pointed to by the above URL. I couldn’t, that Chrome could automatically translate, anyway. Quite often his lifespan is listed as 1877-1913, which were just his most active years (he turned 23 in 1877). In any event, this is the first work by him used here.

    both have info about this artist, perhaps in addition to what’s pointed to by the first URL. Perhaps those who read German can find more (I couldn’t, that Chrome could automatically translate, even with Google Translate added to chrome://extensions/). This is the first work by him used here.

    http://hoocher.com/Eugene_de_Blaas/Eugene_de_Blaas.html 

    all have info about this artist (some say he died in 1931, others 1932, both on February 10 – though 2 of the 3 listed here currently say 1932, I think 1931 is probably correct). So far, 13 works (14 times, including 1 repeat) by him have been used here. 

    http://www.gocomics.com/that-is-priceless/2017/03/03?comments=visible 

    has the prior work, like this, another of the several he did while in Venice:
