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.

Organ and Parmigianino

Same ticket as Christine, with a note that I vastly prefer both artists on the top to the artists on the bottom.

I'll go with Organ and Parmagianino too. Parmagianino's Self Portrait in a Convex Mirror is, I think, the best of any of them.

A tough call between two I like at the top and two I am medium on in the bottom. I'll go Organ and Parmagianino.

Susan says "#1- Organ #2 - Parmigiano "

Y'all have convinced me to take a second look at Organ and go with him. In the second match, I'm going with Overbeck.

Organ and Overbeck. I like the second Parmigiano okay, but I am going to have nightmares about that baby in the first one.

Organ and Overbeck. I think it's funny that to me, in each of the matchups one artist has issues with human proportions. Either that or I do.

Michael5000 said...

Organ wins the top match in a nine-to-one landslide! You can still vote on the bottom match if you're just coming along now.

Michael5000 said...

But now you can't. Parmigiano took the bottom match seven votes to three, and underrated Overbeck is outtahere.
