A little culture

Some music and art for your consideration.  Just be aware that they have nothing to do with my name.  Note also that "Neopolitan Fisher" - the terms that can be used to find the art - involve a misnaming of the piece which should be "Neapolitan Fisher Girls Surprised Bathing by Moonlight".  The misspelling of Neapolitan, meaning "of Naples", often makes people think that I have a thing for ice-cream or (far less frequently) a breed of mastiff.

Neopolitan Dreams - Lisa Mitchell

"Neopolitan Fisher" - but not really - from 1840
By J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851)

Sadly, the unremitting attention of a spambot means you may have to verify your humanity.
