The Ladder of Art -- Week #32


Cast your votes for up to four of these seven artists by Friday July 12.  For clarifications, consult the Ladder of Art FAQ.


Froment falls at the second hurdle, Andre takes his spot, and Kalf continues to hang tough.  Is it Chase week or Canaletto week?  And what do we think of the new kids?

Andre/Canaletto/Kalf/Chase. I almost cast a negative vote for Tiepolo, who rubs me the wrong way.

Candida said...

Andre, Canaletto.

Nore said...

Riopelle, andre, Canaletto, and Daubigny.

Elliott said...

Vote against Riopelle.

I'm ready to move one from Daubigny, Canaletto, and Kalf, but it's hard to when the new competition is so lacklustre to me. So they'll all get my vote again.

As for my fourth? Despite the return of the giant Cinnabon, I'll give it to Andre, who has a way with cubes.

Hmmmm. Well, I'll say Canaletto and Dobson.

Susan says "Dobson, Canaletto, Kalf, Daubigny."

Oh, I dunno. Let's say Andre and Daubigny.
