Description of the artwork «Museum director»

Once Count Bestuzhev
I had a little cold
But he healed with a glass
And became Bestuzhev-Ryumin.

Question: who knows the director of a shoe factory who knows how to make felt boots?
Or this: to whom is the name of the director of the philharmonic who wrote the opera known?
Another thing: can I tell the name of the director of the confectionery factory, which ...
No, not the one who became president (although it is cool to be the director of a confectionery factory and become president)?

In Kiev, there is successfully the Museum of Russian Art. It is quite successfully pass interesting exhibitions and no less interesting lectures. The museum is flourishing and the artists dream of exhibiting their works in its historical walls. Some dreams come true.

A very interesting and talented artist directs this Art Temple. Beautiful person. Witty, cheerful, impressive, seething and full of creative power. How does he manage to combine all this? I do not know.

For solemn occasions, the director of the museum puts on a tailcoat. I only read about this type of masculine clothing, I saw it in costumed films and never in local life. To tail coat has an order, a ribbon and a gold frame of glasses. It’s not an artist who appears before his eyes - they usually look much simpler, but rather the count de ...
But after all, the director of the museum is an artist, it is a bright artist, it is an outstanding artist. What happens in this world? Where does the artist come from? Not in the sense of “where did you take it”, but “how was it decided” ?! For example, I have never put on a tie in my whole life, and then there is a butterfly to dress coat! Completely unknown attribute! Like earrings in men's ears. So beautiful! Solemnly! I would like to stand on one knee with the words: "Your Majesty, let me drink for you."

And the buffet is near, in the next room and there they pour without a twinge of ranks and uniforms.
And now, long-legged creatures roam the hall, and between them are not quite neat personalities with mustache and beards, and ... The director of the museum, like a new yacht in the sunset sun ...

Every birthday is a museum director arranges an exhibition of his portraits by famous and not-so-famous artists.
I am one of the last, but I was also offered this honor. Gathering her courage, quickly painted a canvas that was not small (for me).
Brought to the festive opening day. Put on the exhibition easel. The born-born Director reacted favorably and favorably. But...
In the portrait he is depicted in a suit (I sometimes go to this one), and I donned a dress coat to an event! And the portrait is "slightly" prituh. It is good to repaint ...
But I did not dare to this feat. Not yet decided.
Now I have a dream: make up the Museum Director in a tailcoat!

I propose to answer this question: have you seen the Director of anything in a dress coat? I - for the first time.

On the visiting card of the Museum Director is printed in gold on red:

And they said - autocracy overthrown. Lied out. Or they were mistaken.
I personally like this king!
Many years, dear Director of the museum!
