Art critics have long argued about That Smile, The Half Length Sitting Portrait, and the Curious Landscape Beyond . . .
"Shall I tell him his fly's undone?
No! That would really spoil the fun.
While he fiddles with his brushes
I'll just keep shtumm and spare his blushes!"
"I wonder where this sitting's going?
M'lady's little knees are showing.
I'd better paint her all demure
so hubby thinks she's Mona pure!"
The country scene stretched far and wide
with ricks and barns wherein to hide.
That's why the portrait's done outdoors . .
(Bluddi hard, those castle floors . . . )
