  • Lost to Camille Pissarro in Round 2.
  • Made it past Antonio del Pollaiolo in the Left Bracket Second Round by a safe margin.
  • Beat John Piper again, this time only by a single vote, in a Grudge Match YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

Pablo Picasso
1881 - 1973
  • Beat Piero della Francesca easily in Round 1.
  • Beat Piero di Cosimo in Round 2.
  • Upset by Joachim Patenier in the Round 3 by a single vote. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

The second Pisanello is pretty good, but Picasso gets the vote for his astounding versatility.

Picasso takes the win, with seven votes against three! He improves to 3-1, while Pisanello takes his bow with a record of 3-2. Picasso will need to win through in Third Round Elimination in order to beat Pisanello's final record.
