Hmm, you know what? I hadn't heard of either of these, but after some googling, I am saying Jan van Goyen.

I'm voting for Goya, in the hopes that the Blue Boy and the Duchess will get into a staring match later in the brackets.

Goya, easy.

Goya kicks his butt. No contest. I like the one with the guy eating the baby. Hey, I was just in Cooperstown and saw the rise and fall of Roman Empire series of paintings. Think you'd dig it. http://www.jcrows.com/cole.html

Yeah, Goya.

Definitely Goya. He's an old favorite back from my high school days, when Spanish class included an intro to Spanish culture.

Goyen, though I like both.

Goya for me, because I really like "Saturn Eating His Son". van Goyen for Alison.

I feel kind of lame for going against the A-list name in Round One, but... Van Goyen.

An email voter checks in for Goya.

Goya, but not based on these.

And it's Francisco Goya, with a 12-5 trouncing of Van Goyen. Things can only get tougher for the Spaniard in this challenging bracket.
