My power ranking is 1st Manet > 1st Metsu > All other Manet > All other Metsu. So, Manet.

The first Manet is my favorite of all of them (is that impressionism becoming post-impressionism?), but, overall, I like Metsu better.

There was two Manet votes and one Metsu vote on the Facebook feed.

I keep warming up to Manet... but I do like Metsu quite... but I guess this is what the late Tournament is just like... so let's say MANET for me.

Metsu.

Metsu takes six votes, which would have been enough to win many of the less popular matches in this tournament. Not this one, though. Manet takes a big 11 votes, and will move on to a contest against Haeckel later this week.
