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.

Susan: "#1 - Vigee le Brun #2- Wallis -- Exact contemporary Brits & really a tie. I like both second examples best, Wallis' first a bit better than Wadsworth's"
