Vouet, Daubigny, Roubiliac, Cimabue.

mrs.5000 said...

Cimabue! And Daubigny, Vouet, and Roubiliac.

Michael5000 said...

I'll go, hmm, Daubigny, Lochner, and I'll stick with Vouet for one more go.

DrSchnell said...

Daubigny is the only one I can get enough enthusiasm together for. I'll cast one negative vote for Twombly.

Lochner, Roubiliac, Vouet, and an anti-vote for Twombly.

UnwiseOwl said...

Daubigny, Vouet, and Roubiliac for me.

Gretchen says "Lochner, Vouet, Roubiliac, Twombly" on Facebook. Good to see ol' Twombly getting some love.

Some other votes: Susan says "Still only two votes: Daubigny & Lochner. And an anti-vote for Soutine -- I hoped we'd never see that awful skate (manta ray?) & its innards again!"

Then, Elliott and Nora vote Daubigny and Vouet and against Soutine and Twombly; however, their father seems to suspect collusion and suggests that these only count as one vote.
