Lam! Poliakoff! Judd! Canaletto! Also wouldn't have minded voting for Sickert!

Candida said...

Da Fabriano, Poliakoff, Lam, and Canaletto for me.

Susan says "Judd, Canaletto & Daubigny -- Boring Boring."

Michael5000 said...

Whereas, I'm going to go with Da Fabriano, Poliakoff, Lam, and... well, wouldn't have minded voting for Sickert, but a more honest vote is against Judd, who for me is no Daubigney, nor even a Canaletto. So to recap: Da Fab, Pol, Lam, and anti-Judd.

Poliakoff, Daubigny, Canaletto, and Judd

Daubigny, Canaletto, Lam, and Judd

Sorry Canaletto, I think I'm ready to move on. But not from Daubigny. Keep rising you crazy proto-impressionist! Lam gets my vote for sure and will so for a while; The Jungle is one of my favorites pieces period. And I'm tempted to jump on the anti-Judd bandwagon, but I really like Da Fabriano and Sickert, so they'll get my last 2 votes.
