I feel like I should vote for Van Eyck, but I can't get over how much the couple looks like aliens. Another vote for Sir Naked

I feel guilty about this, but van Eyck has never been my favorite. Etty, on the other hand, painted Hero and Leander. So... Etty, though honestly I'd take Marlowe given the choice.

Van Eyck!

And it's Van Eyck 7-5, after an unexpectedly brisk challenge from Mr. Etty.
