Art Theft

OK, folks, i took this pic of some street art on Market at Gough, and i just know that figure has been stolen out of a painting by some Great Master that i’m supposed to be able to remember.  What i do seem to remember is that he wasn’t coming out of a window (or a picture frame)  in the original and that it had to do with religion.

greatA free jar of jam or something to whoever can identify the source.  Write me.

Oh, and i don’t know whether thinking about that art triggered it, but for the second time in San Francisco, Matte went to church this morning.

No no, don’t worry.  Just the Unitarians.

And it didn’t take.

 

Late note:  In March, 2016 i blundered across this painting online.  I was wrong about his not coming out of a frame in the original, which is Pere Borrell del Caso’s most famous work, Escaping Criticism (1874).
