Seeing as I was a tad late last week (that is late, as in delayed, not as in deceased – yet), I thought I’d do a little penitence by sending through today’s Art Burn a little ahead of schedule. If you’re new to this wee backwater (that almost came out wrong*, didn’t it?) of the Interweb, we extend an ‘art-felt’ welcome.
Upon entering this site, you will be searched for weapons. If you don’t have any, we will give you one; because we have a little tradition here on a Weddersday. Y’see, we randomly select a piece of art from yesteryear (or a few days either side) and apply an irreverent caption; to brighten it up a little, mainly, but also to see if we can get an Old Master to spin in his grave. It hasn’t happened yet, so you lot are just not trying hard enough.
In the days of old, when the k-niggits were bold etc, etc., it appears that far too many blokes were called Jean Baptiste something or other. Today’s victim is no exception. He answers to Jean Baptiste Greuze. In the spirit of the theme of the thing, get cracking.
*Yes, I know it can be debated whether ‘wrong’ in this context is an adjective or an adverb; in which case it ought to be written ‘wrongly’. However, I left it thus to enhance whatever comedic effect the rest of the sentence might provide…… Look, just get on with thinking up an inappropriate caption will you; dash it all man!
