Daubigny and Bartolomeo. I like all of Vouet's other than that first one, so I guess I'll vote for him too.

Elliott said...

Wadsworth is so cool! And that reflection in the first Daubigny is amazing. I'll also vote for Vouet.

Candida said...

Vouet, Daubigny, and Bartolomeo, will do it for me.

Morgan said...

Daubigny in the lead by far, and then a vote for Fra Bartolomeo, Gros, and Primaticcio.

Michael5000 said...

I'm going with Wadsworth, Fra Bart, and Daubigny.

For Vouet, Daubigny and Gros, against Wadsworth.

Susan says "VOTES: Wadsworth, Gros, Daubigny -- who is indeed the best so far (IMHO of course!).
There were certainly some ugly customers in the early rounds."

Gros, Daubigny, and Vouet for sure. The rest I was feeling pretty uninspired by. But Wadsworth was interesting, and with some further googling I came across his dazzle ships, which were really cool. So I'll vote for him too.

Wadsworth, Daubigny, and Vouet.

A vigorous week of art appreciation ends with Daubigny taking his third consecutive bye-week. Vouet's in second, and a three-way tie for third means that he'll be joined by Fra B, Fros, and Wadsworth this coming week, where they'll be taking on last week's tied winners and only a single new-to-the-ladder contestant. And of course it will be awesome.
