Vasarely has piqued my fancy this morning. Would I vote for him normally? Maybe not!

Vasarely really pops! Surprised to find myself voting for him.

Velazquez, but either is OK with me really.

Velázquez is an old favorite of mine--as in the case of Bosch and Goya, a trip to El Prado when I was in high school seems to have cemented a lifelong admiration. Vasarely's fun, but Velázquez is head, shoulders, and a 20-foot ladder above him.

I had to do some annoying homework about Las Meninas once, and so I have suitable admiration for Velasquez but I just plain love Vasarely so he gets my vote.

I have a funny childhood nostalgia for Vasarely.
