This is super tough. They're both proficient and vibrant and fun. These are terrific paintings.

I guess I'll go for Massys.

Massys might be the more historically valuable painter but his figures are so stiff next to Leighton's. I'm going with Leighton.

So let's see, that's six for Leighton, but nine for Massys, who must therefore carry the flag against Velazquez. We'll see how he does!
