A Fine Point – Vibert

       A cardinal and a monk debate while sitting at a fountain in this artwork by J. Vibert. The monk, clad in a light brown habit and hood, raises his right hand in a gesture to accompany his words, while looking down at a sheet of paper he has drawn from a portfolio on his lap. The cardinal, dressed in his red cassock, holds his hat and listens to the monk with his head bent and with a slight smile on his face. Ducks swim in the fountain behind the two men. Dark trees stand in the background.
