On one hand, Rossetti does have considerably more flair. On the other hand, as Chuckdaddy points out, he is kind of just the worst. I think on balance I'll plop for Van Ruisdael.

Van Ruisdael trounces Rossetti, nine votes to two, and wins the right to advance! He'll take on Sisley next weekend in an attempt to keep his remarkable Left-Bracket winning streak alive. He has made it to 4-1 after losing in his opening match; we'll see if he can make it five in a row!
