Vallotton, Gozzoli, and Cragg as the clear best. For me it's between Hartung and Bonnard for the fourth... on further consideration I'll vote Hartung.

I'm voting for Christo again. My man. Keep it going, Christo! I have him in my Sweet Sixteen this season with that amazing big structure that I want to see in person.
