William Dale Matherly replied to Daniel Bonnell's discussion You Be the Critic
"Daniel, I find this painting powerful and a bit overwhelming.  The two thieves have an almost ghoulish look to them - perhaps that's why I struggle to know which is the one seeking to save himself and which is the one who recognizes the…"
