Vallotton and Gozzoli for sure. And then Cragg and Fantin-Latour, although I feel a bit sad for not voting for Johns here.

Pollack! And I'll also go Maillol and Gozzoli. And a vote against Fantin-Latour because his works are so fucking boring.

Nora said...

Vallotton, Pollack, Cragg, and Fantin-Latour.

Elliott said...

Vallotton, Cragg, and Maillol.

Vote against Johns.

Hey, did you mix up Ribera and Mondrian? I bet that doesn't happen very often!

Well, first of all a vote for Fantin-Latour, because who could possibly fail to love the taut psychological drama implicit in works such as Infiltration of the Secret Portrait Society? Then I guess it's Cragg, Gozzoli, and Vallotton. Looks like I've picked the Morgan slate.

Candida said...

Fantin-Latour, Vallotton, Gozzoli.

Susan says: I seem to have gone down to three VOTES lately, but I love these three: Vallotton, Gozzoli & Fantin-Latour.

And here's me, voting cleanup: Pollock, though I can't save him; Cragg, though it doesn't change anything; and then perhaps Gozzoli, because that's a good trio.
