I don't much like either of them. Rosetti.

Rousseau, though his paintings are only tolerable when he leaves people out of them. It's disloyal of me to vote against Rossetti, considering the loving attention he pays to jewelry, but his portraits are all kind of vapid.

I don't love Rousseau, but I like and he certainly has a unique artistic voice. I have trouble finding anything I like Rossetti.

I'm really surprised to find myself so soft on the preRafaelites these days, but... Rossetti.
