I'm liking Masolino's use of pastel, so I'll vote for him.

Massys. The guy in the red hat looks like Bob Newhart.

Huh. The Florentine or the Dutch dude? A little googling tells me it's the Dutch dude, good old Quentin.

I love the look on the guy's face in the second Massys. What's he going for? Is he sneering at the artist? Showing pride at what Bob Newhart is writing?

Either way, it's close, but I'm a sucker for gold- Masolino.
