Whatever genre Chardin and Liotard are, I am a big fan. Still, Adams is the shiznit and gets my vote.

I like Liotard, but if his work suddenly disappeared from the planet, I'm not sure I would notice, whereas...you know, I think I'd really miss Ansel Adams.

I agree with others so far. The Swiss guy does nice stuff, but Ansel Adams, come on. Ansel Adams.

By email, a formal abstention. "I don't usually have trouble deciding between two very different artists... but this time I can't decide. Both achieve technical perfection in such different ways."

I might have had to agonize about this one, but as it is I can throw in a meaningless vote for the Swiss guy, whom I like a lot!

Aww, Liotard looks like a sweetie. I'll go with him.

Two late votes for Liotard, but only after Adams built his crushing crushing 8-0 lead. Adams with an easy win in this match.
