Apparently, the painter John Graham was highly eccentric, both in his personal life and in his art. One fascination he had was with crossed eyes, as seen above.

His self-portrait below shows a certain, ah, uniqueness.

Read more about him in this LIFE magazine article and at this site.

Hey, at least he didn't do little kids / animals with big, over-sized, sappy brown eyes like those annoying paintings that hung on every wall in the mid '70's. I wanted to tear them off the wall every time I saw one.

Ugly and juvenile looking to me.
