All of these make me terribly uncomfortable, in a good, "artsy" way. Soutine.

I recommend a Wikipedia read for Spencer. I was really surprised by the twists and turns his life and art took. He gets my vote over Soutine, who's just kind of gross- right?

Yeah, I was figuring I'd vote for Soutine based on these images--I don't like the creepy cutesy business--but a little Googling, and Spencer totally won me over.

Like Mrs., I'm not usually a creepy cutesy fan, but these I kind of like. He's kind of the European Botero! Spencer.

Susan voted for Spencer a while back, but I've been lazy.
