- It is a better picture for 2 reasons : a) from a great photographer, Napoleon Sarony ; b) Twain is known for his white hair, i.e. this is closer to his expected look (principle of least surprise). This is not about taste, but about the fact it is hard to recognize Twain in this painting. As you probably know it is generally better to use a photograph than a painting in the infobox. Now if you prefer the other one, go ahead ! But a word of rationale would be appreciated. Cheers, Racconish vita 2014. január 15., 18:44 (CET)
Your thinking is very strange. I hardly recognized Mark Twain on that picture (with white hair), maybe it is not him at all. Surely I am under-educated because I do not know the name of "Napoleon Sarony".
I found another picture in Commons (that pic by Sarony is not in Commons), so I change the picture in the article, please check if it is good enough for you. misibacsi*üzenet 2014. január 15., 19:51 (CET)
