Quandary Resolution 3822
flaneur, have Van Gogh's ear for music, eschew, skirr

When he wasn’t busy painting pictures to flatter the insatiable vanity of future billionaires, Vincent Van Gogh tended to eschew the company of other artists and to spend his time as a flaneur, skirring off quickly for example at the mere sight from a distance of his intrusive cousin, the middling opera singer Joost Van Gogh, whose proud descendants bristle with anger to this day on hearing the derisive phrase “Van Gogh’s ear for music”.
