I picked up a book in a second hand bookshop called "Picture This" by Joseph Heller (author of Catch-22). It's all about the Rembrandt painting above of Aristotle (a bugger for the bottle) and is a damn good read.

 Took our youngest grandchildren to Kelvingrove on Saturday. Glasgow Boys exhibition- excellent. Here's my pick - James Guthrie's  A Highland Funeral 1882

Damn that's harsh, the emotions are so well captured. Burial of the boys 7-year old sister, apparently.
