    Just thought I'd post this image of a group of stiff men in suits (except for one) after seeing JB's photo of a group of early American Supreme Court Justices: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145617-photo-of-grover-cleveland-and-other-judges

    Hey, I don't mean no disrespect to my American neighbours (yes, there IS a "u" in "neighbour"...!), but this framed poster I found at a yard sale last summer SO reminded me of that photo! It could be a representation of history's first photo-bomb.

      LOL - that's just Uncle "Goofy"
    2. Kydur Kydur, 7 years ago
      I figured Uncle Goofy needed his own closeup so I've added another photo.

      LMAO, kydur, that's a good one.....

      It's a medium-sized poster at 19"x27" so I'm hoping to one day stumble across a reasonably-priced big ol' garishly ornate Victorian frame that's just the right size to remount it in, which I think would be a most proper way to accent the humour!
    6. Alan2310 Alan2310, 7 years ago
      Maybe i have something for you, what size is this poster ??
    7. Alan2310 Alan2310, 7 years ago
      I am not drunk, sorry i just see your measurement.

      The satire here is wonderful!
      Do we know whose painting this is? I may have to investigate....

      Father, Third from Left

      Thanks for that info walksoftly, that's what the woman said to me at the yard sale when I bought it and I just thought she was joking! Nice to know the artist and origin. Also great to know that the $2 I paid for it (framed) was a good deal.

      I wish CW allowed enough photo slots to show close-ups of all the odd fellow faces; each of them have their own strange character and most are quite amusing, in a "straight man" relationship to Father.
    13. Kydur Kydur, 7 years ago
      Scott, as soon as I saw it I HAD to have it; the cost was secondary, and at $2 irrelevant.

      You're welcome Kydur.
      You can edit & add two more pics.
      The guy sitting on the right & the guy standing over his right shoulder look the same, they must be brothers....lol

      This artist is twisted, in a good way though!
      Check out some of his other work.

      Thanks for the gallery link walksoftly, it was a fun browse. There looks to be some Gary Larson (Far Side) influence in Michael Sowa's work; or maybe it was the other way around and Sowa influenced Larson.
    18. Kydur Kydur, 7 years ago
      For real Alan?! That would be GREAT.. will be in contact soon!

      Some I don't get, perhaps they don't translate well from German.
      These two are funny though.

      Have added 3 cropped sections of the poster in order to see the individual faces better.
