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.

Sort of an 0 for 4 for me, but if I must choose, I'll go with Tintoretto and de Troy.

I'll go with Tintoretto up top, and can't be bothered down under.

Tintoretto puts a real pasting on Tobey up top, capturing eleven of the twelve votes. The bottom match is still live until I tell you otherwise!

I hereby tell you otherwise. De Troy takes this one, eight votes to three, and marches on to almost certain defeat in the Second Round! Or at least that's how I read the situation.
