More of scarves

Hair started to head south yesterday. Not ideal but to be expected. I am now practicing wearing a head scarf and think I could do worse than take note of how this fellow is sporting his head wear.
This is a another work by our old friend, Jan van Eyck (see earlier entry on Mr & Mrs Arnolfini). Portrait of a Man is possibly a self-portrait. The National Gallery (where you can see this painting) says we can tell this because of the inscription on the frame, ‘Jan van Eyck made me on 21 October 1433’, and because of the direction of his look. Whoever he is, this chap is a mean-scarf-wearer.
