I really dislike some of Legér's works. Still, I like them better when they get more abstract and Morandi's catalog is a bit of a snorefest.

Blech to Morandi. Leger.

Susan votes for Morandi by email.

Also, "Kalacandra" is an awfully cool alias, or perhaps it's an actual name. Thanks for your vote!

Wow, boring vs. not boring. Léger.

For me, it's Morandi by a whisker.

Morandi fails to go all the way, baby, and loses the match -- and his place in the Tournament -- to Legar, 8 votes to 5.
