Even if the first artist may or may not have some hot lesbian action going on with two redheads, I still have to side with artist number two. I've always liked a few of those paintings.

Wyeth, who is certainly on my stamps.

Lord Leighton's comeback starts too late, so it's all Wyeth in this one -- he takes the victory 11 votes to 1, and moves on to an interesting contest with Michelangelo! We'll eventually see Leighton again in the Left Brackets.
