Damn. I hate this matchup. Kittycat notwithstanding (and much as I like Paris) I am going with Feininger.

Ooh...I can't decide if I like the cathedral or that city corner more. For hanging in my house, I'm go Foujuta without a doubt, but I think I prefer Feininger on general artistic merits.

A regretful vote-by-mail for Feininger.

Foujita, with a girlish squeal of enthusiasm!

Feininger wins a contest of apparently mostly torn votes, 8-5. He'll keep moving to the right, while Foujita will hope for more chances over in the Left Brackets. Thanks for voting!
