    Hmmm, looks like that 'man' is wearing a dress- could this be a female painter?

    Thanks for the tip! We’ll also change the source data so that we can keep the information we show here in Flickr and in our own catalog ( http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/catalog.html) in sync

    Yes if you click on the All Sizes button you can see its a woman because her legs are exposed at the calf as if she has hose on.

    She's still there , it's not a woman , it's actually Dave the Girlie Mchuge. Well known in those parts.
