Rembrandt has drawn the most difficult bracket slot in the history of the tournament thus far, I think. This time I'll swing Rivera. Really dig the second and third of his.

Rivera. Sacrilege I know, but I've actually seen a lot of Rivera's murals, and they are amazing.

My loyalty is to Rivera. (Speaking of Mexican muralists, did you know that there is a huge Orozco fresco in the library of Dartmouth College, of all places? http://www.dartmouth.edu/digitalorozco/
