Due to a dearth of well-timed pairings, we will eschew the Third Thursday foray into the Semi-Finals this week. Possibly for the last time!
Meanwhile, there is a quorum call out on the following matches:
Faceoff #1: van Ruisdael v. Ryman
Jacob van Ruisdael
1628 - 1682
Thumped by Rachel Ruysch in Round 1.
Lost badly to Francesco Salviati in Round 1.
Faceoff #2: Sánchez Cotán v. Savery
Juan Sánchez Cotán
1561 - 1637
Pounded by John Singer Sargent in Round 1.
1392ish - 1450
Lost to Roelandt Savery in Round 1.
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.
