Spilliaert. I like a range of emotion.

And Lawrence for Spillaert.

Sittow is an old school master, but Spilliaert is mysterious and dark. I'm voting Spilliaert.

Those last two Spilliaerts remind me of Munch and de Chirico, but generally he doesn't really do it for me. Sittow sure can paint great faces. Lets go Sittow.

Shocked anyone is voting for Spillaert. His work seems like it comes from a semi-talented moody teenager. Sittow for sure.

Sittow, easy.
