There's something in my brain that causes me to judge artists I've heard of more harshly. That being said, Picasso gets my vote.

Um, Picasso, yes.

Picasso in a landslide. I'm finally not just making a joke and picking one on a whim. I really like both those paintings.

Picasso! "The girls would turn the color of an avocado/ when he'd drive down the street in his Eldorado/ He could walk down your street and girls could not resist the stare / Pablo Picasso never got called an a@@hole"

Picasso is not one of my favorite painters, but he has my vote here.

Picasso is not one of Candida's favorite painters, but he has nine votes here against Mr. Piero della Francesca's three, and that will move him into Round Two! Voting is hereby closed in this here pairing.
