Tissot.

I'm very fond of both, but one's more fashion illustration while the other is raging beauty. So, Turner.

I like them both as well but I think Turner.

I very much enjoy Tissot's style and skill, but I'm voting Turner. Because sometimes impressions matter.

Tissot! Very much Tissot!

Every one of Tissot's paintings looks like it's illustrating a scene in a trite Victorian novel. Turner, on the other hand, seems bent on taking on the world--weather, elements, history, light. Even in his quieter scenes, there seems some turbulent act of creation that's just held in check. Definitely Turner for me!

That is a seriously difficult choice, but as an Oxford man, I have to back Turner.

Gotta go for Turner as well, even though you don't have my favorite ("The Fighting Temeraire").

I like the new Tissot and I do not like the new Turner. But I think I still prefer Turner overall.
