Not a huge fan off a lot of the new folks. I'll vote Lipchitz, Gros, Daubigny.

Lely--what great noses! And they look like actual people, not, um, oilpaintshopped.
West.
Veronese.
Daubigny.

I'll take Sir Peter for one of his best known works that you have included, "Now kindly give me back my dang pen, you butthole."

Not feeling the new portrait guys, but will cast a vote for Jacques "The Shit" Lipchitz. I will also happily push for Daubigny's epic rise to continue. And Veronese for sure. I'm getting a little tired of Gros but still prefer him to the competition.
