That first Cole is allegorically trippy as hell, but I am going to vote for Landseer and his noble stag.

Which does not mean what you think I mean, M5K.

Hmmm, two very accomplished artists I kind of fail to love. Landseer is like the Bougereau of animal portraiture. I'll go with Thomas Cole, who's maybe the Bougereau of breathtaking landscapes.

And Cole wins this one easily, 10 votes to 3, setting up that most thrilling of IAT scenarios: the Grudge Match. See you Thursday!
