Goya was my favorite court appointed subversive. No one has ever captured vacuity with wealth so subtly and effectively. Love him, love him, love him. Compare to Diego Rivera- who wasn't as subtle with his contempt. But people came back for more from both of them.

He's looking a little beefy.

For me the problem with this picture is that Goya seems to be making Wellington look like one of those vacuous members of the Spanish nobility that he was famous for depicting. It just doesn't fit. Nosey may have been a lot of things but vacuous was not even on the long list.
