Giorgione, Three Philosophers, 1508

Once again not the main figure, but rather the man in the back, has caught the eye of the Haut Boy scouter. The artsy man with the with the sharp jaw bone that muses into the forest seems to be as smart as he is attractive – which can be a great contribution to the Haut Boys band.

With an aura of mystery and almost weightlessness surrounding the painting, Giorgione portrays the three men of clearly different ethnicities with an alluring style. All contemplating something fascinating, their relationship to each other, besides the mutual job title, seems obscure. And yet, each man compliments the others in terms of placing and color. There’s a lovely balance of light colors on the outside and the tomato red in the middle.

Not to mention the youngest one in white is delicious. Haut Boys? Check.
