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.

Tanguy for sure. And, um, Thiebaud?

Michael5000 said...

Both of the top guys over both of the -- d'oh!!!

I guess I'll go with Tanguy up top. And I guess I'll go with Tiepolo down below.

Well, seems that we've got us a good old-fashioned TIE between Tanguy and Terborch! That will let us go into action immediately to resolve the Noland-Nolde Tie of '15. And by "immediately," I mean Tuesday. We'll leave the bottom match open while that's getting taken care of, so if you have a pick on the Thiebaud/Tiepolo front, now's the time to say.

Well, nobody ever checked in on the Thiebaud/Tiepolo front, so I guess this is where I announce that IT TOO IS A 5-5 tie! This could make things weird. We'll see!
