Hi Phong,
Oh not quite so with old Yosuf, as "he was the personality" and everything
was built around the Master "taking the portrait. " In other words those
busy prominent people who sat for him sat quietly and as long as he required
to do his magic. ;-)

And anyone else trying that wouldn't have a chance! ;-)
