Dec 20: Georges Schwizgebel [Updated]

After so much 50s Hollywood, let's turn to contemporary independent animation for a change: La course à l'abîme (1992) is one of Schwizgebel's hand painted masterpieces. Set to music by Gounod ("The Damnation of Faust"), it is one of several of his short films that revolve around a Faustian theme.

In my opinion, this is mandatory viewing not only because of the successful marriage of music and animation but also for its sheer conceptual brilliance.

What's the color of the second (black) horseman's hat (upper left corner)?
In case you are new, THIS is how it works. 

A                      B                      C                      D

It was D (yellow):

My instinct says yellow (D). It would give warm colors to both the riders.

C cause the man and horse seem to be inverse in color of the other.

My answer is C. And thanks for recommendation. I never watched Le course à l'abîme before.
