I'll go with Carra.

1/2 Chirico

1/2 Balla

Here's an email vote: "Catlin -- he just gets better & better."

I like Chuckdaddy's recipe. And I like Carrà's dynamism.

Carrà takes this one on a two-vote swing. We'll find out how the dynamism of Italian Futurism holds up against big rusty constructions in Second Round Elimination, coming Tuesday!
