Yeah, that site's cleverly blocked the "right click and copy URL" method of linking to pictures. Bet Rusty can do it.

Rats.

Try right click > "Open in New Window". Works on my ancient Win 98. Or disable Javascript. Or try one of these:

http://www.washington.org/bluesanddream ... alGal.html

"Bearden described himself this way: 'You must become a blues singer only you sing on the canvas — you find the rhythm and catch it good and structure it as you go along—then the song is you.'":

I'm not sure why people try that crap- it just hurts accessibility. If your webserver has served up the content then the client has got it, one way or another.

Disabling JavaScript usually works, unless the content is generated by JavaScript... can also get the URL out of the source code. If all else fails, take a screen shot. ctrl-printscreen in Windows, IIRC, cmd-shift-3 on a Mac. In Windows it's copied as a bitmap to the clipboard, so open up MS Paint (or something better if you've got it) and hit 'paste' and then save it as something reasonable (a jpeg, typically).

Kool Rusty, you in the bidness too? Y'ouse de bye!

My site is http://www.elegandata.com and two music sites I have recently done (for friends) are http://www.whitneysmith.ca and http://www.kenhamm.com. Ken is a fabulous acoustic player, fingerpicking and National slide.

That's a bit personal, isn't it?

LOL! I thought the same thing when I read it.

>Heavily influenced by Matisse, he had a wide range of subjects,
and by Picasso, Leger, Braque, Juan Gris, Kirchner, Miro, John Heartsfield, and a thousand more...
Saw nothing new in the work of R. Bearden.

Sorry, I thought the topic was "The Bluesiest Painter - Draughtsman" not "The Most Innovative Painter of the 20th Century".

You're right, and IMO bluespeople are original.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jul-02-05 AT 02:01 PM (EST)]Found the work of this painter today!!!
I like his portraits very much.
And they're kind of bluesy.

Yeah, they're interesting. Sort of caricatures for the most part. The ones with the musicians' heads on bird bodies are a little bizarre.
