      I should have explained the rules.

      You have to pick the one you like best out of the two and then add one in the next post.

          "Think as I think," said a man,
          "Or you are abominably wicked;
          You are a toad."
          And after I had thought of it,
          I said: "I will, then, be a toad." - Stephen Crane

              That first one looks like a cross between an illustration of an Ayn Rand novel and those Tom of Finland paintings.

                Probably because the artist who did the cover for a few of her reissues uses the same soft cubist Art Deco style of Tamara de Lempicka.

                I think he did the Ayn Rand postage stamp, too.

                Her stuff is very close to iconic. I recognize it immediately or at least works that are derivative.

                  Whatever. I didn't mean it as a compliment. There's very little Cubism that appeals to me, and that particular brand of soullessness, not at all. And I don't really care if it's a statement. It's ugly.

                    Yea. I understand. I never really got Rothko.

                      Boring, but inoffensively so (unless one happens to have paid a great deal of money for one, but that's self-inflicted). The hyper-stylized pictures feel like fascist poster propaganda instead of art. JMO, needless to say.
