Ghirlandaio has really grown on me, and I hate to see him go. But I love the emotions that Turner's paintings evoke, so I'll go with him.

Turner. The man was a magician with colour.

Ghirlandaio has all the virtues you'd expect from your Renaissance Florence, except...well...don't his large scenes seem a bit...cluttered? A little too carried away with their whiz-bang constructed perspectives? You certainly can't make the same complaint about Turner, who was all about sweeping things away and letting the light in. I'll go with him.

It all comes down to Chance... whose comment about the nose tips me off the fence on Ghirlandaio's side. (Do You Know the Way To) Electric Ghilandaio?
