I'd literally just made that point on the preceding thread. The Rolf one can be seen here:
Personally, I think the Lucien Freud one's dire and comparatively, the Rolf painting is much better.
It may not be a straight yes or no answer but it is an answer to the question as far as I'm concerned, after all if it was not of the queen would the question even have been raised ?
However to appease you, if taken from the art point of view I think they are both pretty appalling.
no I don't agree with you about the monarchy, but that's not the point. It was just the tone of the post, maybe you were trying to make a point re the monarchy, but it might as well just read 'who cares'. And I don't like 'answers' that seem to ridicule the question.
I have no problem with difference of opinions, in fact i thrive on them. But the question was about art, not about whether or not we should have a monarchy - If you want a debate about that start another thread, but I'm going home now, I'll row with you about it tomorrow! ;o)
