Froment! Flaming tree and self-referential miniature portrait...pretty rad.

I admit I'm Gabonian.

Gotta go with Gabo.

I'm not nuts about the 2nd guy, but I like him better than the 1st guy. There always seem to be sheep and other animals around important bible moments in paintings . . .

I REALLY like the mother and child in the nest of trees (it's Galadriel!), but, Gabo.

Froment for me!

This one is really close for me, but I'll go with Gabo.

I'm always surprised enough when I like sculpture or anything from the 20th century that something like this (sculpture from the 20th century) probably kind of ends up with bonus points. I am fond of the flaming tree and the miniature, but I find myself wanting to look at the sculpture more, so it's a vote for Gabo.

Time's up! Gabo takes down Froment without too much of a struggle. Final score: 11-3.
