When Man Bites Dog...

Mrs. Buce is not at all impressed that the Met has recommissioned a long-languishing portrait of Philip IV as "really" a Velzaquez.
One more Philip IV?  Who needs it? There must be 40 of them.* Now, if it were Philip III, maybe.  Or Philip V.  Or a portrait of Velazquez by Philip IV, then we'd be getting somewhere.
*Wiki counts 11, though if you throw in portraits of the family, you'd get a lot more.  Still an ugly dude, though, wouldn't you say?
