Abelardo Morell and Charles Demuth

Adolphe William Bourguereau, because you can't beat being naked by the ocean.

And Pieter Saendredam, for his little teeny people in giant architectural spaces.

I'll go with Adolf "Who Let The Dogs Out" Wolfli and Saendredam

Morgan said...

Bourguereau and Demuth, with a nod towards Saendredam.

Wow, this is a good lis. We must know how to pick them.

Without hesitation, though, I'll go with Abelardo Morell and Pieter Saenredam (only one "d" in that).

pfly said...

Only two? Grrrr... um, hmm, Benton and Bourguereau?

Ben said...

Benton and DeMuth. But they're all good!

Michael5000 said...

Yeah, this one is pretty cruel.

OK, crap. This is an insanely strong slate. I'm going to go for Bourguereau, because I'm a sentimental fool, and Benton, because he's kind of like the Aaron Copland of painting. Love Wolfli, love Sandredam, love Morrell.

Candida said...

Morell and Bouguereau, with much love also going to Saenredam and even some trickle-down love to Benton.

Michael5000 said...

By email: This is hard. I hate not to vote for Morell & TH Benton, but it's going to be Demuth & Saendredam.

Michael5000 said...

And time quietly expires on Flight 2. It's a sort of upset, as #12 Bouguereau takes out #4 Morrell for a ticket to the big show! Meanwhile, the clunkiness of the format has yielded us with another three-way tie for second: Thomas Hart Benton, Charles DeMuth, and Pieter Saendredam wait in limbo to find out what happens next. Wolfli misses the cut, and the lowest seed, Alechinsky, is happy to have played, even if he didn't catch a vote.

Thank you for voting, you excellent voters, you!
