Orpen, but that's just because an obnoxious art history prof ruined Mondrian for me.

Susan says "Mondrian -- straight lines instead of weirdness this time."

I don't know much about this Orpen fellow, but he seems to have quite a bit of range. I'm going to throw over Mondrian for him in this round.

Orpen, even though the dowager isn't really flipping anybody off.

I voted for Orpen? I did? Well, I promised myself I would never reverse myself at vote-countin' time, and so I won't, and so Orpen takes it, seven vote to five! It's an upset, and a big win for Christine M's obnoxious art history prof!
