The Infinite Art Tournament, First Elimination Round #10/64

Faceoff #1: Caro v. Carracci

Sir Anthony Caro
born 1924

Lost to Vittore Carpaccio by two votes in a Round 1 plagued by low voter turnout.  YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!


Annibale Carracci
1560 - 1609

Beaten badly by Carlo Carrà in Round 1.

Faceoff #2: Castagno v. Catlin

Andrea del Castagno
1421 - 1457

Lost decisively to impressionist Mary Cassatt in Round 1.


George Catlin
1796 - 1872

Defeated by Vincenzo Catena in Round 1.

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.

All of the links are from 6/64! That's a long way back to copy the format from

Annibale "Haters Gonna Hate Jesus" Carracci and George "Lots of Flamingos" Catlin!

Easy peasy. 2 guys I voted for against 2 guys I voted against. Caro and Catlin.

Oh, and (putting on vice-dork hat) your links are crazy off. They're all from elimination round #6.

Well spotted, Southern Vice-Dork and Dork Emeritus. Should be fixed.

Elizabeth said...

Caro, and Catlin only because of the flamingos (oes?) but I really don't like his other painting on offer.

Caro and del Castagno. Yes, the private party in the Agate Room of the Last-Nite Diner beats out all the squiggly flamingos and hummocks of savages.

lamanyana said...

Oh - I missed the agate room aspect - I'm switching my vote from Catlin to del Castagno.

Candida said...

Carracci and Del Castagno.

Michael5000 said...

Here's a vote-by-email for "Caro over Caracci & Catlin over Castagno"

Michael5000 said...

While for me, it's Caro over Caracci but Andrea "Judas Gonna Betray Jesus" Castagno over George Catlin.

And the smoke clears on two 7-4 victories, Caro over Carracci and Catlin over Castagno. Our winners will advance to take on Catena and Carra respectively; our losers will move on to the, um, Hall of Honour.

Voting closed in this round.
