This painting is a little joke in a technical study. I was busy making a copy of this well known painting when my attention was caught by the fact that the American government had adopted “trickle down economics”. The economic principle under which the idea is that if you make the rich richer, some of the wealth will “trickle down” to the middle classes. Funnily enough this was the dominant eceonomic principle of the Middle Ages in the Duchy of Burgundy.. where it didn’t work either..
As a result, Philip the Good as Duke of Burgundy with a bankroll in his hands.
