The Old Masters – re-interpreted 139

Good morning art connoisseurs and intellectual bods. Are you ready for a little Art Burn? [Did you see what I did there? Art Burn – Heart Bu….Oh do get on with it – Mrs Chips].

This morning we shall apply a little irreverent heat to the reputation of one Quentin Metsys the Younger. In this case one might say that, in this blog, Quentin Metsys match [enough with the lame puns already – Mrs Chips]. Anyway, Quentin sounds like he won’t put up much of a fight so here’s his depiction of Queen Elizabeth I – have at it.

Quentin Metsys the Younger, Portrait of Elizabeth I - one doesn't mind accompanying the revelers dont yknow - but one objects to being handed a silent sieve when ones rhythm is a tad off

During the jollifications, one doesn’t mind accompanying the revelers – but one does object to being handed a silent sieve just because one’s rhythm is a bit awf.


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.
