da Messina. There's something about the clean-cut straight lines that appeals to me.

All other than strength you also need to be able to maintain the right time.

I'm a sucker for people who can paint transparent things, plus I would really like to have that study with all its little cubbyholes. da Messina.

I saw some great Archipenko in Los Angeles this winter.

But, I am more and more impressed with Antonella da Messina. I admire how he mines additional planar and perspectival information for distance work, yet he also excels in capturing human features, which he starts off up in close proximity to.

I would like to cast my vote for Mr. Antonello da Messina, for I think his art is better.

You know, I also prefer Messina, but just slightly and not nearly by the amount this current rout indicates most people do. But still, Messina.

I agree with everyone else! Messina. And also that I do like Archipenko despite his being trounced here.

I like some of Archipenko's stuff a whole lot, but I too am going with da Messina in this one.
