Lost to Paula Modersohn-Becker in Round 1.


Luca Signorelli

Faceoff #2: Siqueiros v. Sluter

David Alfaro Siqueiros

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.

I'm with Riley and Sluter, which feels inconsistent, but I see I'm in good company!

Oh! And so am I. Riley and Sluter!

...and that late vote gives Riley a six-four win over Signorelli, and Sluter an eight-three victory over Sisquieros. Riley and Sluter will continue into the next round this week; the other two will collect their easels, palettes, and brushes at the cloakroom. Although Sluter might not have used any of those things.
