I really like both. Uccello, but it took me a while to decide.

Vieira da Silva for me. Uccello is all historical and important and such, but he's painfully stiff.

Vieira da Silva pours on some steam in the late voting, and emerges the victor over Uccello with a vote count of seven to six. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!! The Tournament's best-performing Portuguese abstractionist will take on Utamaro later this week in hopes of making it to the Third Round! YOUR VOTE WILL COUNT!!!
