The Ladder of Art -- Week #38


Cast your votes for up to four of these seven artists by Friday August 23.  For clarifications, consult the Ladder of Art FAQ.


Kalf falls off the ladder this week, having climbed vigorously from a three-way tie for 454th to a two-way tie for 417th!  That sets up this week's match among two veterans, two artists who have held their own for a couple of weeks, and three new guys who beat them in the main tournament, but may or may not be able to beat them now!

1. Chase: 7
2. Daubigny: 6
2.
Honthorst: 6
4. Marin: 4
5. Vorrocchio: 3
5. Kalf: 3

Wow, I dunno. Noland... and Marin?

Oh, I saw Hilliard, and remembered him as "that miniaturist guy." He's pretty amazing. I'll vote for him, and Canaletto, and, hmmm, Kitaj and Marin.
