    It’s very inspiring, Charley Parker, tak (= thanks).
    In 1839 Martinus Christian Wedseltoft Rørbye was the first Thorvaldsen Medal awarded artist for his painting based on sketches, “En Tyrkisk Notar, Som Afslutter En Aegtepagt”, A Turkish notary drawing up a marriage contract (in front of the Kiliç Ali Pasha Mosque, Tophane, Constantinople).,_Som_Afslutter_En_Aegtepagt_(Martinus_R%C3%B8rbye).jpg

  2. Ugh, this is so beautiful, that it even hurts to look at it.

    I hope that doesn’t sound too weird.

    1. No, but I hope it would be more inspirational than intimidating, if that’s what you mean.

  3. Gorgeous! ! !
