“The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth and have it found out by accident.” ― Charles Lamb
He cannot see her grief and tries to voice over it.
Teddy Roosevelt: Baby, your goth get up sets my bull moose party ablaze! How about you and me head back to the dining car and sup on raw oysters, washed down with splash of Dr. Elijah's Potency Tonic/Steam Engine Cleaner?
Teddy was a gentleman. He would not intrude on a young lady like that and not catch the cues. Plus he was only 16 years old when this painting was done.
That lady's pool cues need chalking, and hustler Teddy's a-stalking the felt. I Can Help by Billy Swann
That's Joe Bidens grandfather.
No Biden ever bid his time long enough to hold a cigar when there's unmolested, pallid flesh about!
Know all about it.
In modern times, that jerk would feel my sharp elbow in his face. Ooops - did I do that?
Phenomenal skill. I can't fully comprehend how someone can do that with paint and a brush. It seems like magic.
Think of how much worse it would be in airline seats.
Meade? Is that you!
Kind of a fancy painting to go on a handbag in 1874. The item actually looks surprisingly modern and would fit right in somewhere today.
There is nothing like a dame!
At first glance she looks pissed. In the bigger higher resolution image she looks like she has a tear in her eye. It changes the mood of the painting considerably.
The original German title, Der lästige Kavalier, carries a bit of etymological nuance that I can't resist. First, the noun Kavalier is translated as "gentleman" when there is a perfectly fine German word for that: der Herr. Kavalier in this context means a "ladies man" or at least someone we might call cavalier. Secondly, the adjective lästige, doesn't really mean "irritating," but more "interminable, unending, boring." Looking at his other works, Woltze seems to have been a sort of German Norman Rockwell. See for example his Ein Brief aus Amerika (A Letter from America).
I don't know guys, I just saw a painting of a white canvas with a red dot in the middle at the local 'modern' art museum.It was like, super deep, and interesting. Or so, the guidebook told me.
