    The first is what the Swedish museum that now owns the painting has titled it (in its English webpage, a human as opposed to an online translation). The second is what the former owner, that sold it to the museum, titled it, and was the only WC title until today. The museum bought it in 2023, perhaps too recent to change the WC title to the museum’s. So, I showed both (a no brainer on my part).

    I haven’t seen the painting to which you refer; but, if it’s privately owned, as this is, and the artist didn’t name it (they sometimes do on the backs of paintings), auction houses invent a title they think will sell, perhaps not what the artist intended for the painting.

    After a short communication with Mr. Melcher, I have to change one thing. Instead of it being a 3rd work by this artist, it’s actually a repeat of the first by him, the October 12, 2015, strip; but, with a different caption; so, only 2 by him here so far. GoComics has deactivated the hyperlinks and removed the new lines in my 10/12/15 comment; but, perhaps the text remains informative.

    Also, I’ve added a reply to my blog comment which makes the full info available anytime, not just on Fridays.
