Translation fail o' the day

From EUPravda:



What has actually happened is that the painting, The Tears of Saint Peter, is one of a series that has returned from a sojourn in Mexico.

Since I can't see a parapet without wanting to stick my head above it, I will aver that El Greco is, by a broad margin, my least favourite of the Old Masters.  And now let the hurling of brickbats commence.

It would be utterly remiss of me not to wheel out of Flann O'Brien's 'Chapman & Keats' bon mots:

"I trace your influences more in Seurat than in Ingres".

(I may well have got the first bit wrong, but even Homer nods so I'm allowed to too)
