Greatest Painting
I just saw an article about how the BBC is sponsoring a poll on what is the greatest painting in the UK.

This got me thinking. What is the greatest painting in United States of America? (Not just limited to US artists.) Here are some candidates off the top of my head:

A Sunday on the Grande Jatte by George Seurat

Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? by Paul Gauguin

A Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Picasso

The Feast of the Gods by Titian and Bellini

The Polish Rider by Rembrandt

The Annunciation Tryptich by Robert Campin

I'm sure I'm missing some other obvious choices...
