I'll vote for Whistler because he didn't do religious scenes, though they're both very talented.

Whistler was kind of a jerk, but I like his work better.

The whistlers feel a little languid to me. And that second one by weyden? Wow. One of my favorite paintings ever. Him.

On FB, Mariah goes for Whistler and Rebecca goes for Van der Weyden. Did I get that right? Yes.

Yikes, brutal. Both so good. Van der Weyden, perhaps a little more amazing.
