Subject matters.

Really feelin' this portrait of Frederick Gustavus Burnaby by James Tissot. Frederic Burnaby was a really interesting character who sought balloon ascents, travelled to Spain, worked as a correspondent for The Times, set out on an expedition to Sudan and the nile, and even completed several horseback missions through Russia. Wow!!! what and an interesting character, no wonder Tissot painted him like this - regal, confident and relaxed. And that leg!!! move over Angelina!!!
