Vote for the two artists of your choice! Votes generally go in the comments, but have been known to arrive by email, by postcard, or in a sealed envelope.

Please note that you may vote only once in each face-off.  Opining that both of the artists in one of the two face-offs is superior to the other is fine, but casting your votes for two artists in the same face-off is not permissible.

Greuze and Grünewald for me, although this lineup is exceptionally strong for a first elimination round.

The contorted guitar tuner and the guy eating soup that appears to have fingers floating in it: Greuze.

And because et in Arcadia ego, Guercino.

Greuze and, after some deliberation, Grunewald. I like Guercino quite a bit, so the last one's a toughie.

Greuze and Grünewald for me.

We've got a vote-by-mail for Gros and Guercino. I guess that's two votes-by-mail.

And! It's Greuze running away with it 9-2 in the top contest.

The bottom match is still technically open for a day or two, and who doesn't love a technicality! Late votes welcome!

And! The bottom match is now technically closed, with Grünewald taking it 7-4!
