Fra Angelico

  • Defeated Florentine master Andrea del Sarto in Round 1 by a decisive but respectful margin.
  • Beat Sofonisba Anguissola in Round 2 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!! (This match was incorrectly determined a tie in March 2013; the miscount was discovered in May 2013. YOUR VIGILANCE COUNTS!!!)
  • Made it past Arcimboldo in Round 3.
  • Lost to Albrecht Altdorfer in Round 4 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

A matchup for the centuries! I like Fra Angelico's brand of weirdness better.

Fra Angelico, for sure. I think I've said before that Beckmann always looks to me like a grim take on "Tintin."

Most days I'm a Fra Angelico kind of guy, but I'm giving this one to Beckmann.
