Personally, I don't like either very much, but I have a differing opinion
about skill level.

Picasso began as a perfect realist, and he was a master painter at 16 --
then he got bored with that and he branched off into all those different
styles and periods, while Van Gogh struggled all his life with the technical
aspects of painting, lacking in motor skills, but having much passion for his
work and being more consistant in his improvements.

But why would we want to talk abotu such old dea art? Whats happening NOW??
year 2000??
