I think I'll go with Metsu. More living animals.

2nd guy for sure. 1st guy is way too into dead animals and is likely a serial killer.

Metsu. That one with the "this way up" basket, the "don't look at this" naval painting "oh you looked at it!" And the other painting of...of...wood? And hey lady, you dropped your thimble! ...and your shoe. And your little dog too!

Definitely Metsu over the meticulous dead animals. That second painting is a mirror, pfly. Ain't it great, though. I am all ready to catch up on the gossip with those two women, if only they'd invite me over.

Metsu, but I'm surprisingly fond of Oudry.

Metsu, but neither do much for me.

Metsu takes this one, 8 to 3, and as a reward will go on against Michaelangelo in the Third Round!
