The Blind Singer – Ramón Bayeu y Subías – 1786

Ramón Bayeu y Subías  1746 –  1793

Now that is blue.  At times we get questions about fabric color for clothing, I don’t think anyone would mistake this man’s outfit for drab.  It looks like the castanet boy has lost all his buttons and has to hold his clothes together with strings.

I love funky old hurdy gurdy music especially Jiri Wehle.
