The Old Masters – re-interpreted 134

Hello. You look a little lost. Are you perhaps looking for that famous website where discerning visitors (those to whom Mensa Society members appear a ‘little slow’) carefully scrutinise Old Master paintings, and then add their own caption, rendering in an instant, the painter’s talent in tatters? Good. It’s just round the bend. I’m going that way, I’ll take you.

Today, as the last few hours of 2015 slip away forever, like a fried egg from your plate into a waiting dog, we will diligently interpret Henri Matisse’s work, the Yellow Dress.

Modern Ettiquette 101: “After a good curry, ensure your post-meal comfort by positioning yourself near an open window (especially when there is no dog nearby to glare at). However, it is also wise to wear a dress of considerable weight, unlike the unfortunate lady in Figure 1, whose lightweight outfit gives the game away and might result in your dance card being embarrassingly empty.

About Freud Fission Chips

Despite the banality of the name, FFC has led an intensely varied life. Grateful for surviving almost three years as a 'troepie' (soldier for non-South African Readers) in the Angolan war, he determined to wring as much out of life as possible. Currently providing Business Analysis services, trading on the stock market and developing web pages to pay the bills, FFC also dabbles in wildlife, landscape and people photography, writing, and far too many interests for his own good. He has also travelled extensively in southern Africa (working on the sound theory that a moving target is more dificult to hit). These peregrinations also include over 1500kms on foot through some of the worlds most spectacular scenery. It hasn't all been plain sailing, beer and skittles, and endless beds of roses... Chief amongst the prerequisites for surviving Africa, with its mind-bending characteristics, is an appropriate sense of humour.... So, for now, he will be recounting the amusing among the annoying, the frustrating wrapped in the funny and extracting the mirth from the melancholy... Oh yes, there might be some alliteration too.
