Belle - A Portrait

[Text by lar3ry gensch]

"Belle - A Portrait" (belle.gif, 724x868x2, 10944 bytes) is the 46th in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]>.

As the boorish Gaston remarks to LeFou during the song _Belle_ in Disney's _Beauty and the Beast_:

    Gaston:  She's the one!  The lucky girl I'm going to marry.
    LeFou:   But she's - 
    Gaston:  The most beautiful girl in town!
    LeFou:   I know, but -
    Gaston:  That makes her the best. And don't I deserve the best?

It is not my intention to answer Gaston's question here, but this portrait lovingly crafted by Bob Ito shows that Gaston certainly had good taste in females.
