Zurbarán for SURE. Painting number 2 is my favorite.

Split FB votes, one for Velázquez and one for Zurbarán.

Velázquez seems much the more interesting between these two guys -- I always feel like Zurbarán gets an unfair bump because people need a "Z" artist to round out their alphabetical lists of artists. Would we even know him if his name was Verbaran? Whereas, Velázquez is awesome.
