Martin is so, like, Alma-Tadema takes on the Hudson River School in one apocalyptic summer blockbuster after another. But I'm, like, whoa, loved that trippy little movie about the flying saint. Go, Martini.

Susan votes for Martin.

Martin is so overwrought. He needs to relax, perhaps with a martini. I have seen the writing on the wall, and it says: Martini.

Martini, though if I were reading a description of his paintings, I think I'd be surprised by the fact that I was voting for him. (This may be even more true for Martin, though.)

This one is all tied up. So was its bracket partner, though, so there will now be an odd little flip-flop. It's always something going on, in the Infinite Art Tournament!
