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.

Hey, #64 of 64! Last of the first elimination rounds? Hooray, another last of the first! Maybe this tournament ain't so infinite after all...

Susan says "#1 - Tatlin #2 - Abstain -- I dislike them equally"

Michael5000 said...

OK, Michael5000 is going to join the abstaining parade on #1, and vote for DuChamps in #2...

Michael5000 said...

...and we'll close it right there. That means that Duchamps beats Zuccarelli, four votes to three with two abstaining. Tatlin and Zoffany lock up at four apiece, with one abstaining. That means there will be another Round One Elimination Round after all. Hurrah!
