Emperor's new clothes

"Emperor Haute Couture" -- Margaret Sutherland 
My hat is off for Margaret Sutherland for her wonderful usage of cynicism and symbolism, however, I might add that she missed the opportunity to paint one of the suits peeling him a grape... I don't usually 'get' art and it even more seldom 'sings' to me. This piece is deserving of the Fine Arts Museum of Ottawa, or maybe the entrance of parliament.


Update: 05-24-12 The painting has been purchased for $5000.
