Susan votes for Millet -- "not voting for that non-Venetian Rhino."

I don't know whether I've just seen lots of bad Millet reproductions -- he was so popular back when reproductions were really bad -- or if maybe I just don't much like Millet. Either way, I'll swing with Oudry.

Oudry did so well for so long, but his momentum disappeared and he loses his second straight match here, three votes to eight. He more or less won the Play-In Tournament, but is leaving the main Tournament with a record of only 1-2. He'll almost certainly be the only Play-In artist to fare so badly.
