    Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #2250 (7/24/19) (February 28, 2024) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with my comment pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. So far, 2 works by him have been used here (4 times total, including this and a prior Throwback Thursday repeat), the July 24, 2019, strip being its first use. The February 1, 2024, strip has the prior by him (the other repeat).

    Correction: Forgot about a flight I took to South Africa back in 2001 that had a stop in Amsterdam; so, technically, I have been within 2,000 miles of London at least once.

    Catalogue Note in the webpage pointed to by the Source link in the WC file pointed to by my above comment, is the original.

    The Source link in the WC file pointed to by my above comment points to the Sotheby’s webpage for this painting. The webpage’s Catalogue Note section has a lengthy description/discussion of the painting. Could that be what you found?

    Been around the world visiting less populated areas; but, have never been within 2,000 miles of London in my life. For all I know the Hall of Van Art really is part of the National Gallery. Also, if you click its link in the WC file pointed to by my comment below, you will see the A Witch painting is very close to the strip painting; so, for all I know, other similar ones may exist. Yes, if there’s a joke embedded in your comment, I missed it.

    If that’s the about letter size A Witch one, it’s a different painting (in the Royal Collection). This one is larger, still privately owned in 2009, and has differences in the horse’s head and rear areas, compared to A Witch (Other versions in the WC file pointed to by my comment below). An online search of the National Gallery’s website finds no paintings by this artist. Was it on loan or part of an exhibition when you saw it?

    Just curious as to how a 1863 painting was finished before the 1861 Paris Salon. Time travel again I guess.
