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.

The guy who revolutionized three dimensionality or the silly funny-shaped people riding horses? Silly funny-shaped people riding horses for me and... Doesburg.

Van Doesburg takes a close one by a two-vote swing! And in the lower contest, Massacio eventually gets out ahead of Marini for an 8-4 victory. Thanks for voting!
