Faldoni, parts 2840 -2843

 2840. And the stains from the coffee grounds make it all the better, although in Mr. Hunt’s case it was a certain coloration provided by a tea bag.

 2841. Thinking these confusing and contradictory thoughts as he stood on the sidewalk there on Oxford Street in 1848, he espied in the distance a fellow painter, also one of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, coming his way. Fortunately he had stopped talking out-loud to himself because this was all taking place over 150 years ago, so there was nobody around to think he was simple talking on a cell phone.

 2842. The fellow painter who was approaching him was none other than John Millais, the other founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. John M. And Holman Hunt had a lot of things in common in that they both did highly detailed, lavish paintings in which they attempted to extol the virtues of medieval art, especially its vivid colors which they greatly admired.

2843. But even though their paintings were similar, and even though they were both founders of their “Brotherhood,” still they often disagreed about certain mundane subjects, and it was Holman’s opinion that John M. was simply a contrary personality, prone to disagree with any idea anyone ventured to express. I am sure you are familiar with the type.
