I'm usually a sucker for golden bling on paintings, but will make an exception this time and go for Géricault.

Oh, it pains me, but Gericault.

Géricault for me.

Susan votes for Gericault.

This is a tough one for me. I think I'm going to fall on the side of Lorenzo Monaco, because it's pretty.

Candida said...

Monaco, I guess. Gericault almost got it with the woman and horse; if they'd been a diptych, I probably would've tipped his way since I really wasn't too motivated to look at the differences between Monaco's paintings.

Gericault takes this one, with 7 votes against 3 in light voter turnout. He'll take on Lorenzetti next, in a whole new region of the brackets. Stay tuned.
