I kind of hate them both. Rousseau? Please don't let this be the one vote that wins it for him.

Rousseau. Also, I feel very art-snobby for recognizing the scene in the second Rubens.

Kenneth Noisewater said...

I'll go with the second artist. Those mashed up boobs that ladies wore back in old school France days and such looked so painful. But I guess that's coming back into fashion. Yay!

Aw man. Ah well, Rubens—though I'm not sure I love these particular paintings of his.

OH NOES IT'S A TIE!!! And since there aren't any other Third Round ties in the hopper currently, we'll just have to put the match on hold until another one comes along. Maybe Nichim will get her wish, and they'll both lose!
