A Masterpiece of artistic accuracy and sanctimonious malice!
Editors note: This sentence makes no sense in the context of what follows however Court Painter’s Press Attache AHM is enamoured with it and insists on its inclusion.
Although all of this was in plain view, many art critics, even people of rank, spread different stories.Different people had different views as to what possessed Court Painter. Some said it was a kind of frenzy. Others claimed he was possessed by a demon or maybe even worse, the Muse.
Let us take it that this infamy happened from a natural cause. This teaches us he has failed to repress the passions of the soul, and has become dominated by them, flirting with irreparable harm to his natural constitution.It was said that Court Painter had been damaged in a certain vein in the region of the brain by excessive imaginings, fantasies and anxieties.They say that there is the region in the brain, a very small, slender vein that nourishes the power of imagination and fantasy. Therefore when imaginations and fantasies abound in us,this little vein becomes agitated,and if it is sufficiently agitated and harmed, it ruptures, and the person falls into a frenzy of artistic insanity.Court Painter fails to set a limit, then, in his fantasies and imaginations, his conjectures and other pointless and useless cogitations thus falling into so great and irremediable a peril as to claim to be in the spasms of perdition.
Meanwhile Court Painter on most good days continues to hob nob and gallivant around with unrestrained glee and occasional gravity, exercising his social climbing proclivities wherever the company ,whatever the setting .
The following photographs released from the Court Painter archives document his seance attendance and other elbow rubbing with the chattering class!
