Dubuffet, though I am having a hard time deciding whether I like the second piece or not.

A big fan of both, but will go with Mr. Squiggles.

Oh, Dubuffet, no question. I have very fond memories of Dubuffet from elementary school field trips to the Albright Knox Museum.

Dubuffet!

I always like the modern stuff better so I gotta go wit the first guy. I especially like his mash up of Edvard Munch's the scream with the band at the Star Wars Cantina.

Dubuffet … as much for the name as the paintings.

Here's an email vote for Duccio.

Also, I had a chance to see Dubuffets up close and personal, yesterday. Which, unlike the usual experience, strengthened my vote for Duccio.

Duccio! I love the little faces in the margins.

PB said...

Duccio and the early hints of the Renaissance!

Duccio.

Duccio surged late, but couldn't overcome an 0-7 deficit and ends up losing by a 2-vote swing, 6-8. Dubuffet will continue on to the second round to take on... somebody.
