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.

And we've wrapped up First Round Elimination with two artists beating two other artists! To be more specific, Thiebaud has beaten Tatlin and will stay alive to take on Teniers up in his original brackets slot. Zoffany tramples all over Tiepolo, nine votes to one -- Tiepolo has perhaps gone out of style? -- and will also stay in his original brackets slot, taking on Zurbaran. Fans of First Round Elimination may now rend their garments.
