John Everett Millais (1829-1896)
“The Black Brunswicker” (1860)
Oil on canvas
Pre-Raphaelite
Located in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight, England

The painting was inspired by the exploits of the Black Brunswickers, a German volunteer corps of the Napoleonic Wars, during the Waterloo campaign and by the contrasts of black broadcloth and pearl-white satin in a moment of tender conflict.

What happens when a shitposter, a memefucker, and a furry all come together to run a badly drawn blog?

“Well, he read in the strangest way. I mean, I could never read unless I’d have a rainy afternoon or a long evening in bed, or something. He’d read walking, he’d read at the table, at meals, he’d read after dinner, he’d read in the bathtub, he’d read – prop open a book on his desk – on his bureau – while he was doing his tie.”
-Jacqueline Kennedy, describing life with John F. Kennedy, from the 1964 interviews with Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. Photograph taken in Hyannisport, 1959. Much to admire, now add life-long learner.

Today would have been his 100th birthday.
