I certainly don't dislike the other artist. But, Escher.

Vuillard is actually pretty good, but doesn't inspire much excitement for me. I'll stick with Escher here.

Escher. I love the way it molds reality.

Ooh. I actually really love Vuillard, but Escher is such an original, he gets my vote.

Susan voted for Vuillard a long time ago, but it didn't get entered.

So... that's two votes for Vuillard, but ten for Escher. Escher moves on to try his luck against Van der Weyden, and Vuillard will wait to see whether he takes on Whistler or Wilkie next. I bet it will be Whistler!
