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.

Whereas me? I'm going to call both pairings a wash!

Boom, and it's Cragg in a blowout, racking up 10 votes to Leyden's but 1.

And in the second match, it's Maillol over Luini, 8 votes to 3.
