Sorry, Mr. Turner, it's Vermeer all the way.

Hmmm... painter with a painting actually called "The Geographer" on the one hand. But, on the other hand, Turner!! I'll go with Turner on this one.

Susan calls this "one of the most difficult face-offs I can imagine -- Turner v. Vermeer.... I love Turner so I'm going to vote for him."

Hard to vote against Turner. Except his opponent is Vermeer, so actually I find it pretty easy.

Michael5000 said...

Have I mentioned lately how much I like Vermeer?

Nichim said...

Turner. Why do I not like Vermeer, I wonder?

Uhhh, yea, Vermeer

Kind of a see-saw match here, but it ends with Vermeer up six votes to five, so it will be him moving on to the Fifth Round! Turner will of course be back once the Left Bracket catches up to him.
