I don't really like either of them, but Waterhouse I guess.

Huh. Well, certainly neither are quite my thing. But I'll go with Watteau.

Susan votes for Waterhouse.

I'll go with Watteau. I'm enjoying pretending that his sad harlequin is also a "Lady of Chalotte.

Waterhouse, without a doubt. Well, maybe a little doubt. But Waterhouse nevertheless.

Wow, Waterhouse really put the hurt on Watteau here, with a voting total of everybody to The 5000s. Thirteen to two, that translates to in number-speak. It will be interesting to see how they do in their second matches... which is course the whole premise of the Tournament.
