Guston lands for me in the category of "really like but not on my wall." I'll choose him.

After some thought, Guston. I don't really know what I'm looking at, in a good way, I think(?)

Frans Hals. Skulls and trees.

Call me a traditionalist--Hals.

Hals all the way to the semis, in my book. One of my very favorite painters, especially in live action. The humanity! In a good way!

Deck the Hals with boughs of laurel.

Hals eventually pulls ahead for good, and ends with a healthy 10-3 margin. He'll be on to Round 2 next week.

Thanks for voting!
