A possibly conventional choice, but I prefer Bouguereau.

Kahlo

I like Kahlo more than the other surrealists, I do feel like she's trying to draw some meaning from the absurdity. And Bouguereau... Groan. Can the backlash against him begin this round?

Morgan said...

Bouguereau for me, I think.

Ben said...

Tough choice. I like them both for different reasons. I'm going to go with... um... Bouguereau!

Kahlo. I wrote a pretty bad short play about her for a college Spanish class.

Kahlo all the way! The other guy's sentimental and saccharine.
