Metsu.

Metsu. Chickens! Ornate harpsichords or something! An improbable scene out the window! Much more interesting than deity-crowded skies.

I'll go with Metsu too.

I was going to go with Metsu because I figured I'd be the only one voting for him--and doggies!--but I guess I'm just jumping on the bandwagon.

Metsu. Michaelangelo's work has always struck me as large, and I guess that makes it great, but I certainly prefer the art itself in Metsu's paintings.

A few days in Florence, maybe a little architectural history, and you'd all be voting for Michelangelo, like me.

I like Metsu, but this Michelangelo guy seems okay, I'll vote for him.

Susan votes for Michelangelo.

Michelangelo, with some good-natured puzzlement as to why this is a contest.

Michelangelo.

A few more days in Florence might've killed me; as it was, I was too sick to make it out of the train station. But ultimately it comes down to the fact that of what I see here, Metsu moves me and holds my attention so much more.

It is... a tie! Michaelangelo and Gabriel Metsu have tied!! We don't have any other ties going on in Round 3 currently, so they will have to sit back and cool their heels!
