Oh, certainly Caravaggio over Courbet. Fond farewells to Diebenkorn and Braque.

An interesting match up. Courbet really has a lot of pictures quite different from each other that I like, while I'm not a fan of many of Caravaggio's departures from chiaroscuro. But the Caravaggio's I like, wow- they are some of my favorite paintings ever. I'll go with Caravaggio and his much higher ceiling.

Caravaggio has shrunk on me a little during this Tournament, and Courbet hasn't taken up the slack in my heart. I kind of miss The Dieb' and Braque. But I think boonec is right, when Caravaggio is good, he's very very good. Caravaggio and high ceilings!
