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.

OK, time to close this one down. Constable ripped on Lipchitz 9-2. Technically, I could leave it open for a few weeks for the second match, but why bother? Lippi's 11-1 lead over Lochner isn't going away, so we'll just call it a "final tally" and be done with.
