Default Cap Anson and Monet

I shared a picture of my N162 Anson on Facebook, and someone brought to my attention "San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk" by Monet. This caused me to photoshop my Anson - a PSA 1(mk) - on top of it. I instantly fell in love, and figured I'd show it here. They go perfectly together! Fun fact: The N162 predates the painting by about 20 years.



Does anyone have the San Giorio Maggiore at Dusk laying around? I think it is worth a tad more than the Anson. ($100,000,000 apparently!)

So you're accusing Monet of plagiarism?

Beautiful! True story, when I was in graduate school, my wife had a fellowship at a foundation on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, and we lived there together, in a building behind the church, for six months. The sky never looked like that, however.

The Anson looks nice with that back ground.

Can you find a picture back ground for the N162 Kelly? That would be pretty cool.
