I'm not going to hold the fact that Eakins "crushed" my man Elsheimer in the first round against him. He probably couldn't help it. And I think he wins the battle of the boats here. (In fact, I really like the way these paintings match up: boat against boat, stage against stage, crowd against crowd. And I'd give all three rounds to Eakins.)

I like Ensor a lot! But I like Eakins more, I think.

It's Eakins Eakins Eakins, as the American rolls to victory 9-3 in his second big win.
