I love Christo! But not as much as Chagall.

Chagall, please

Chagall, definitely; I think Christo could have taken other artists, but I'm going for the abstractly concrete rather than the concretely abstract with this vote. Or maybe it's the other way around. But still Chagall. Because goats!

Oh, sure, I like Christo, but not as much as Chagall. Plus, Chagall's impact-to-square-yardage ratio is, like, a megazillion times higher.

Yes, I too like Christo, but not as much as Chagall. Maybe someone needs to surround some islands with Chagall paintings...

And voting is complete with Chagall riding a big lead all the way to victory, 9 to 4. Christo falls by the wayside, and Chagall advances to meet an old antagonist for a second time!
