I'm going to call this one a draw.

But what in the heck is going on in that one painting? It looks like a threesome, only the second girl is just watching, maybe just taking a breather.

Schnabel. Looks like it would be very cool to see in person.

Susan votes-by-mail for... neither. She abstains-by-mail.

I'm going with Schnabel here. The texture thing.

Neither does anything for me, but I suppose I'd pause a slightly longer part of a second in front of Schnabel.

Schnabel takes this one easily, with six votes against the other guy's two, with two abstaining! That's the first time we've ever had multiple abstentions!
