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.

Kind of a whole bunch of "B" artists for all sorts of different reasons. I love Manzu's second one here! But the rest do seem a little, like you alluded to before, Maillol-lite. I can't say anything bad about Mangold, but it's hard to get too excited. And Dobson makes very nice portraits and Malevich some abstracy pieces.

I'll go Manzu and Maelvich.

And, time's up! Malevich takes the top contest, eight to three over Dobson; Manzu the bottom, by a single vote: six to five. On to the Second Round!
