I'm kinda lovin' the swan boat and the bunnies, but you can't beat Courbet.

Courbet wins the battle of the biography, but I prefer Del Cossa

Francesco Del Cossa. That Swan Boat and Bunnies picture is amazing.

Um, hm, yea, Gustave Courbet.

Kenneth Noisewater said...

I support the first one because it looks like a Slayer album.

Like Christine M., I'm kinda lovin' the swan boat and the bunnies, but you still can't beat Courbet.

Here's a vote for Courbet in the mail.

...with the comment "Courbet is huge, and can be much better than in these examples. I suppose that is what's called a "spade beard" in the first picture.

Candida said...

Del Cossa, just like everybody else!

Wait, what? You all like Courbet? Crisp is nice, but the picture isn't working for me. I don't think the coach looks right, for one thing, and you'd think these guys should have serious hat hair.

Alison said...

Courbet! Haha, beards

And it's official, Courbet and his beard taking down the swan boat and advancing to the second round on an 8-4 win. Voting's closed!
