Alexandre Cabanel

Alexandre Cabanel [Bio 1823 to 1889
Alexandre Cabanel was a great French academic painter.  In fact (according to Wikipedia), his Birth of Venus is one of the "best know examples of 19th century academic paintings".  His Ophelia is also excellent, but I still think Waterhouse's version is tops.  Which Ophelia do you think is better?
