First guy for sure. I like when an artist captures an expression on someone's face where you kind of can tell what they were like. That one guy looks like such an arrogant prick . . .

Going to flip my pick after seeing some more Knellers. I particularly like his john Locke.

I have a special spot for Kokoschka, probably because there was/is one at the Albright Knox and burned into my brain as a child.

Kneller. I agree with Mr. Noisewater.

Neither really does it for me, but Kokoschka lost me when I googled him. Kneller.

I like Kokoschka and riotous color!

Kokoschka. Kneller is fine most days of the week, but Kokoschka has something special here with that nutty technique.

Despite the Chuckdaddy Flip, Kokoschka marches easily to an 11-4 victory in Round One. Sir Kneller will have to try to stay alive in the Left Brackets.
