The Infinite Art Tournament, Loser's Bracket First Round #1/125

Faceoff #1: Albers v. Allston

Josef Albers
German; worked in the United States


Washington Allston


Faceoff #2: Alma-Tadema v. Amigoni

Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema
Dutch; worked in England


Jacopo Amigoni


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.

Albers, 'cause this is a relatively painless way for me to vote for a guy from the last 120 years or so, and Alma-Tadema because even more enthusiastically ditto.

Rebel said...

I picked Allston last time, but in this match up I like Albers...the blue one is funky.

Alma-Tadema - I'd much rather be in one of those pictures than the alternatives.

Albers, whose work is much better in real life than on the computer screen;

Alma-Tadema, who is worth checking out beyond these two paintings, fine though they are.

An email correspondent sez: "1 - Albers 2 - I'm sticking with Alma-T -- he's irresistable."

Albers, Amigoni.
I just like em.
I also like double elimination tournaments, this project just got a whole lot more infinite.

Going Allston and Amigoni

The vote is closed on Allston/Albers; you may still weigh in on Alta-Tedema/Amigoni.

And now all voting is closed; rounds go to Albers and Alta-Tedema.
