Slipping a last vote in during January! Correggio in the top bracket - I sort of like night light baby Jesus. The bottom is tough; I quite like both. I think I will go with Cuyp, though, because I like his cows/bulls better.

Del Cossa (fantastic fantasy - I want to read the children's book) & Cuyp (glowing cows)

For me: Correggio, one of my faves. I was considering getting a Correggio tattoo at one point.

And Cuyp, who like Correggio is an excellent painter of cows.

Alas, Corregio falls to del Cossa 4-9. It was a fair fight. Cuyp sends Daubigny packing 11-2.
