Welcome back!

Today I'm feeling Sir John, Corot, and von Jawlensky. And then it's close between Derain and Chase... I think I'll swing Chase this time.

Hey, I was thinking of old Marcel Broodthaers the other day. I still don't like him that much, but at least he's memorable. My two votes are for Van Eyck and Corot.

Millais, Van Eyck, Chase.

Who is this Millais character? (Checking) Looks like I forgot about him because his tournament debut was so fleeting. But it's hard to feel too bad about losing by 1 vote to Michelangelo and Millet. Maybe the ladder can give him a second chance?

And my other votes will go to Corot, Chase, and... Jawlensky.
