Orcagna and Lochner for sure. At first I thought I'd cast my remaining votes for Domenichino and Vouet. But Rococo artists tend to have a similar effect on me. I start off disliking them, but their lightness and lack of taking themselves seriously always grows on me. And in this case, that means Roubiliac will knock off the very serious Vouet on this ballot.
