1881 - 1955

Skunked by Joachim Patenier in Round 1.


1447ish - 1523

Lost to Francis Picabia in Round 1.

Faceoff #2: Piero della Francesca v. Pietro da Cortona

Piero della Francesca

Lost to Pablo Picasso in Round 1.


Pietro da Cortona

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 faceoffs is superior to the other is fine, but casting your votes for two artists in the same faceoff is not permissible.

Pechstein by a mile on the top. I'm pretty sure the four paintings on the bottom are by the same person, but I'll swing da Cortona.

Perugino and Piero della Francesca

Both of the top over both of the bottom for me, but of course I don't let me do that. So we'll say Perugino and Piero della Frecesca.

Do we have a quorum here? Yes, by a nose. Perugino takes it over Pechstein six to three, and da Cortona takes down Piero della Frencesca, five to four.
