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.

What is this, fantasy minor league for art lovers? Let's go Schmidt-Rottluff for color, and Schongauer for making it a little prettier a little earlier.

Schad and Schongauer take their matches, both with seven votes against four. So, farewell to Schmidt-Rottluff and Sebastiano pel Piombo.
