Oddbodies tell the story of the Rake as seen through the eyes of some of the more (or less) extraordinary characters in the paintings. Filled with exquisite characterisation and comic observation, this is a perpetual collision of eccentricities, a tilt and tournament of absurdities, the prejudices and caprices of mankind let loose. A Cad's rise and fall is ingeniously documented for lovers of paintings or those who like to enjoy witnessing a bad man's come-uppance.
