Daubigny for sure. Gros and Heron get nods as well. I'm voting against Della Robbia, because I'm pretty shocked anyone voted for him last week. I'm sure I could find better art of a similar style in an antiques-and-curiosities shop in a small town.

van Leyden, Gros, Daubigny, and Freud. I always thought Freud went out too soon! Let's see if he climbs up a little. (So far it's not looking good.)

Nora said...

Votes for Della Robbia, Daubigny, and van Leyden. A vote against Heron.

Chance said...

Freud, del Sarto, Gros.

I've noticed that the "Fresh Faces" factor has some weight with me. For instance, Heron is markedly different than a lot of the fellows we've been spending time with, and that's part of why I'm voting for him. I'm not what you would call a Freudian, though. So: Heron, Della Robia, Lucas van Leyden, and good ol' Daubigny.

Del Sarto, van Leyden, Della Robbia, and Heron. And I'm dreaming of a little curio shop in St. Ives.

Daubigny. Let the rest of 'em go.
