I will take the first artist. That is the most depressed cat I have ever seen. And I have seen my share of depressed cats.

Gwen John. Lovely.

From the FB repost: "Ahhhhh! I wrote my masters thesis on Gwen John. But I have to go with Jasper on this one as the more inventive and ultimately more influential artist."

Jasper Johns, an old favorite, for reasons I don't understand.

I'll take the underdog John easily here, although I do like Johns' crazy house numbers. Never have understood what's up with his flags.

A surprise runaway win for the underdog Gwen John, who takes down Jasper by a 12-4 margin. Thanks for voting, all y'all!
