Description

A painting that reveals (alethe) a whole world. Heidegger mention this particular work of Van Gogh's in
"The Origin of the Work of Art".
"Aletheia, disclosure thought of as the opening of presence, is not yet truth.
Is aletheia then less than truth? Or is it more because it first grants truth as adequatio and certitudo, because there can be no presence and presenting outside of the realm of the opening?"

This Guy! Duke Charles of Burgundy, Also known as Charles the BOLD.. probably because he wanted to carve out an independent kingdom for himself which would have included parts of modern day France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands! FTW! He was one badass , but he died very ignobly at the battle of nancy, and subsequently all his possessions, barring some in France, passed to his daughter Mary, and eventually to the Habsurg family into which she married. 
This painting is by Rogier Van der Wayden, a famous dutch painter and is dated around 1460, when this fine specimen would have been 27 years old.. sighhh 
What a hottie.. those eyes and that jawline is really to die for. He was related to most of the royal families of Europe at that time.. He was Edward IV of england’s brother-in-law (another hottie). Another hottie was his grandson, Philip of Habsburg, his daughter’s son.
