I'm hesitating due to Ruysch's, uh, limited range. But, then again, she might be the best flower painter ever. That gives her the win for me over a good, but not great, impressionist.

Sisley, I guess.

Ruysch. I liked how beautiful the colors were and how realistic it was.

Sisley, with a moderate amount of hesitation! He takes this one, eight votes to four. Thanks for your votes!
