Bei der Restauration eines klassischen Gemäldes aus dem 17. Jahrhunderts haben sie einen übermalten kackenden Mann gefunden, offensichtlich erregte der Erleichternde die Aufmerksamkeit einer allzuleicht beleidigten Leberwurst. Jedenfalls, scheißt der Herr nun wieder gepflegt in die Walachei: Royal Collection restorers find hidden pooper.
A painting in the Royal Collection has been hiding a man captured in the moment of answering a call of nature for more than a hundred years. A Village Fair with a Church Behind by 17th century Dutch painter Isack van Ostade is a vibrant, bustling scene of peasants exploring market wares in a fictional village under the shadow of an unrealistically large church. Restorers were cleaning the oil-on-canvas work in preparation for an upcoming exhibition when they found that a shrub in the bottom right corner was a relatively recent overpainting. When they removed the bush, they found a man popping a proverbial squat, trousers at his ankles, head down in concentration.
