I guess the first guy, but I'm not crazy about it. Reminds me of the "Seinfeld" where George buys the picture of the guy who painted triangles in the hopes that the artist will die and the value will go up.

Moholy-Nagy. I like Mondrian's one print but he repeated it too often.

This was kind of a tricky one for me. I was at first leaning Mondrian, but the google search was not kind to him. It even made me wonder if any artist had quite the potential for a more boring career retrospective show. But in reading his wikipedia bio (I take my votes seriously!), I saw he actually did have some interesting early pieces that had colors that weren't, gasp, primary ones. I also do think his second one is quite cool and am not really much of a fan of any of Moholy-Nagy's.

I guess this is a long way of saying probably neither will get my vote next round, but that I'm going with Mondrian.

All the way with Piet! Mondrian for me!

Candida said...

Mondrian, I guess.

Hmm, I never actually mentioned it back when, but this one was a 6-6 tie.
