One of my favorite figural artists, Frank J. Reilly. I've seen this painting a million times, but for some reason I just now noticed the cat!

Yes that is.. the painting is titled, "Washington's First Meal at His Philadelphia Home". Kinda makes you want to get out your powdered wig and tavern clay, doesn't it?

This is the fourth painting by this artist to appear on this thread:

I forget what this one is called. What difference does it make? I think it's called "The Cripple", or maybe it's called "The Invalid", or it might be called "Ruffino Gold." Whatever it's called, it's a work of art.

Can't decide if the blue lips or pipe in the eye disturbs me most. 'Pipe is in the eye of the beholder?'

The Beholder - good name for this painting.

I think technically the pipe is in the eye of the beholdee.. I wanted to say beheld, but I am pretty sure that is only used as a past participle. :lol:
