My current avatar is a composer of huge importance for me: Aaron Copland. It seems that the information attributed to this photo is that it's dated December 1955 and appears to be in front of some barn of an undisclosed location.

I love being gone from the forum for a few weeks, then reading your most recent post updating your avatar only for it to already be outdated and the picture not matching the composer.  ;D Had to do a double-take on the image.
Thanks for the entertainment, John. Now perhaps I'll go rock-out to Barber's 1st Symphony.

I added to my collection of colour wheels via this original early 60s print ad by Luxite. I'm sure that in the future none of my own print published work will be venerated in the slightest.  ;D

My current avatar is Gustave Brion's original illustration of Inspector Javert from the first edition of Les Misérables. I have also changed my signature to match my avatar.
"Javert, though frightful, had nothing ignoble about him. Probity, sincerity, candor, conviction, the sense of duty, are things which may become hideous when wrongly directed; but which, even when hideous, remain grand."

My current avatar is me. I have donned a space suit because I spend much time in the Trump thread and many of the posters there post as if they are from outer space. I always try to fit in.

Nope. The Van Gogh was. And I had several more before Bizet.

Yorkshire...the accent. The first woman (girl) I ever slept with was from there. I was 14 and she was 17 (UK laws at the time for age of consent, so don't get yer knickers in a twist)  and it was in the rough of a golf course. Afterwards she came out with one of the classics in her delightful twang.
