No white tie and tail coat here, but "'The Boss" looking great, as usual.
In the old days there was a certain herculean beauty seen only in prelatial portraits (and they were always so ably undertaken back in the day).
They knew how to pose then: seated with breviary, draped damask in background and shielded by the resplendent ferraiolone in readiness for a public function.
The Church has envisaged so much for us that we never use and it's a pity bishops don't pose in the ferraiolone anymore.
