Welcome to the second round of M(art)ch Madness, where you decide which of history’s greatest artists advances to the Sweet 16, and who goes home. Voting will be open through noon (New York time) on Thursday. You can see the full 64-team bracket, and the first-round voting percentages, here

First round recap:
Most of the higher seeds got through – which meant the seedings were accurate (yay me) – although some just barely. Diego Rivera, a 12 seed, came two votes shy of toppling No. 4 Monet, and No. 2  Pollock just hung on against No. 15 Georges De La Tour. A pair of No. 10 seeds pulled off upsets over No. 7 seeds: Jan Van Eyck handily beat Mondrian, and Courbet topped El Greco. No. 9 seed Turner also upset No. 8 Bruegel.
