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.

1. Originally thinking Cozens, though I'm now going to vote for Longhi because of that freaky second picture. What the hell is going on there? Pig snacking, dude holding a rhino horn, two zombie minutemen next to George Washington, a guy smoking something and another pasty person with a curtain-rod-end for a hand counseling an 18th century jawa...... I think this all has to do with whatever smoking guy is smoking.....
2. Abstain. Both of them bore me too much to muster up a vote for either.

Definitely Longhi (Clara the Rhinoceros at Carnival!) and Lorenzetti for me. (What's boring about Allegory of Good Government?)

Longhi and Lorenzetti

Both of the ones in the first pairing!

Wait, I'm not allowed to do that? Fine. Cozens and Lorenzetti.

On the FB syndication, Linda says "Longhi and Lorenzetti."

chuckdaddy said...

I'll go Lorenzetti and... Cozens.

Elizabeth said...

Cozens - I'm in the mood for far horizons.

And Lorenzetti.

Emailed vote: #1 - Longhi -- all because I love that Rhino, and #2 - Lorenzetti.

Michael5000 said...

Both of the bottom guys over both of the top guys. No? I can't? OK, then, Longhi and Louis. FINE. Morgan and Doc Schnell are so wrong about this one.

All right, we've got winners. Longhi defeats Cozens, 8-5, and Lorenzetti whups on Louis, 10-2. Thanks for your votes!
