Gulbenkian - viewing problem

 

The gentleman seems to have a problem with his spectacles.  The sculpture, to his right, is French, dating from 1731, by an unknown sculptor, it appears to have been intended for one of the king's (Francis I) chateaux.  The tapestry on his left is Italian, c.1540, from Mantua, entitled 'Children Playing'.

If he stays in that pose he could be considered a work of art himself
Tom Wilson: Perhaps he could be frozen!
He doesn't seem to know which trouser leg to roll up. I hope he can do the handshake
Tom Wilson: I suspect he's never been anywhere near the Masons!
Not sure I really like the sculpture but the tapestry is very good.
Tom Wilson: It's St. Martin sharing his cloak with a beggar smile

Nice juxtaposition
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Lisl.
The sculpture has me laughing, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's a very serious bit of work, Mary - St. Martin sharing his cloak with a beggar smile
Nice shot, Tom, the guy gives it scale.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank.
