I still remember this New York. It was the first one I ever saw, when I visited this girl who'd moved there to study acting, and who ended up working as a receptionist at MTV. I'd wander the city during the day while she worked, mostly just looking to see what these places I'd read about actually looked like. The Palladium mural was particularly impressive. It didn't end well, of course, but I did see the Minutemen at Irving Plaza and Husker Du at Columbia University.

I assume the painting of which you make reference is "The Ambassadors" by Hans Holbein, located prominently in the National Gallery in London.

I know someone would know! Cheers, James

It's called Anamorphosis and thank you for reminding me of the skull in the mural. Forgot all about that.
