Spencer, echoing my earlier statement that this feels like a weaker part of the bracket.

Seurat is a one-trick pony with at least one masterpiece. Spencer is visually arresting and vivid, with no undisputed masterpieces.

Hmmmm.

Spencer.

I like Spencer. He's funny and fluid and has great range. Seurat, for all that he's experimenting with light and color, is just stiff. There, I said it.

Spencer, for funner pictures and including the male gaze in his depiction of a naked woman

Well, voting doesn't get any closer than this, at least in systems where you have to cast a whole integer vote. Seurat comes out the winner, with seven votes against Spencer's six. Spencer leaves the hussle-bustle of the Tourney behind, while Seurat has to prove himself all over again against Reubens, which isn't anybody's idea of a walk in the park.
