            Looks like a character out of 'Peaky Blinders' to me.

              50p? are you trying to ruin me? That's none of your goat, feel the quality of it :biggrin:

              No, more likely to cram it full of sheep and set fire to it :th scifD36:

                  Is the man all of the painting and the other framed picture just happens to be alongside? Or is the framed picture part of the painting?

                  Reason for asking, the frame seems to be of a fairly modern design (1970's onward) - but I may be wrong. :noidea:

                    Which makes me worry when visiting our GPs and asking a question (that they don't know about) they Google it.

                      hopefully, not totally off the subject, but in the same vein. Last month finally went to the Barnes Foundation to see the Art work. Lots of female nudes there. Noticed one thing with all of the nudes, there is no fat rolls on their backs, none, none at all, even the big stern women, no fat. Like that is not correct at all. So two guys were standing there looking, I said to them, you know that is totally wrong, there is no fat on the backs of those women at all. Blushed they did. Funny, grown men blushing just because I talked about no fat on the backs of those nude women to them. Gosh if I talked about other stuff, they would have fainted.
