“James McNeill Whistler’s (A) lover and model for The White Girl , Joanna Hiffernan (X), also posed for Gustave Courbet (B). Historians speculate that Courbet’s erotic painting of her as L’Origine du monde led to the breakup of the friendship between Whistler and Courbet”

Clue ( a  PJ , to  be  frank 😉 ) added  for  Q  No. 396 . Give  it  another  shot , all  of  you .

What’s  the  good  connect ?

A

B

Quoting  Appu ,

“Among numerous musicians who have, in full or in part, borrowed or sampled from Ennio Morricone’s ( A ) ‘Good,  Bad and Ugly‘ Theme are Gorillaz (Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn – B , who composed for Monkey: Journey to the West), whose 2001 debut single, “Clint Eastwood”, was so named because it reminded the group of Morricone’s theme and its melodic structure”

Long winded , but  definitely  the  rite  answer 🙂

Full  points  to  The Good , The  Bad  and  the  Queen connection  as  well  even  though  thats  not  what  I  was  looking  for .
