In a museum, there were these pictures on the wall, of great heroes and nationalists displayed for all visitors to see. One day, John went to the museum and had the opportunity to go from one picture to the other, reading about the achievements of each of these great men and women hanging on the wall and taking notes. However, when he got to where one particular picture was, he took more than a casual interest in it, as he stared at it earnestly for over 30mins. While he was at it, Harry came in and noticed the interest with which John was looking at the picture and was thus prompted to ask, "who is that" Harry asked John, pointing at the same picture.
In reply, John said,
"Brothers and sisters I have none, but this man's father is my father's son"
Now if you are Harry, who's picture was John looking at?

Now if you are Harry, who's whose picture was John looking at?

Since I'm not Harry, John was of course contemplating the Mona Lisa.
