Guardi, but it was a tough choice.

This one was close, but I'm giving the nod to the first artist. I especially like "Maid Checks Her Text Messages."

I'll join the Hammershoi crowd, undoubtedly dispersing silently into misty solitude...

I do like "Maid Checks Her Text Messages," but Hammershoi seems a bit single-register. I'll go for Guardi and warmth.
