The Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Third Round: Champaigne v. Cornell!

After losing to Marc Chagall in his First Match, Philippe de Champaigne has staggered through three one-vote victories in a row. He edged out Cellini, De Chirico, and, in a stunning down-to-the-last-vote grudge match, Marc Chagall.  He stays alive to try for the semi-finals. But can he make it past crowd favorite Joseph Cornell? I can't wait to find out!



Philippe de Champaigne
1602 - 1674
Flemish; worked in France.






Joseph Cornell
1903 - 1972
American
  • Gutted John Singleton Copley in Round 1.
  • Crushed Fran├žois Clouet in Round 2.

I can't believe Chagall is out of the race! But that makes this match easy. Go, Cornell!

Philippe de Champaigne. I'm still rooting for the three views of the Cardinal.

Even though I know that the triple portrait isn't as trippy or innovative as it seems -- they were used back in the day for use by out-of-town sculptors -- I still dig Champagne's. I consistently like his stuff when I see it in person. So I'm going with him.

It's a tight race, but Champaigne finally runs out of luck. Cornell comes out on top with a vote total of 7 to 5!

Thanks for voting!
