I'm a huge fan of Feininger, but in this pairing I find I've gotta go with the nuanced, three-dimensional theater of Gentileschi.

Susan says: "Gentileschi -- These contests are getting harder. Feininger was part of my youth -- I had a print of his in my first NYC studio apartment in l960 -- so I hate not to vote for him"
