The Infinite Art Tournament, Round 3: Diebenkorn v. Braque!

Richard Diebenkorn
1922 - 1994
American

Defeated André Derain by a single vote in Round 1. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
Beat Paul Delvaux decisively in Round 2.








Georges Braque
1882 - 1963
French

Defeated Modernist sculptor Constantin Brancusi in Round 1 in a thrilling come-from-behind one-vote dust-up! YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
Languished for the better part of a year after that victory was miscalculated as a tie, then made it past Germany's Otto Dix in Round 2.

Oh, KILLER. I want to vote for both of them, of course. But, you know, I'm going to go with Diebenkorn.

I rather like Braque

Well, Diebenkorn is cool, but I gotta stick with Mssr. Braque

Interesting matchup and I thought the choice would be harder. But Braque's just don't always seem to quite congeal for me into an image where Diebenkorn's pictures just barely ingeniously do. A strong vote for Portland's prodigal son, DIEBENKORN!!!

Braque - they have hidden pictures, and I always have liked those since my Highlights reading days!

I'd say "Braque, no contest," except that there's a contest and it looks like he's behind in it. But I'll definitely say "Braque."

Braque

Diebenkorn, I guess, though I didn't think I was ever going to vote for him.

It came down to that last vote, but it's Diebenkorn who came out on top in a fierce 8-7 contest. They don't get any closer than that! Unless, of course they are ties.
