Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Round Three: Dossi v. Braque!

Dosso Dossi and Georges Braque have developed the habit of winning or losing by a single vote.  Mr. Dossi has just snuck by Buren, while Mr. Braque was thrown to the left bracket last October by Richard Diebenkorn.  

Will it be another close match?  Let's find out!



Dosso Dossi
c.1490 - 1542
Italian






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 before the discovery that his victory was miscalculated as a tie.
  • Made it past Germany's Otto Dix in Round 2.
  • Lost to Richard Diebenkorn in Round 3 by a single vote. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

I like Braque's work (c'est tellement français!) but I am enjoying Dosso Dossi's work more because of its variety and hidden details. Also he has the better name.

I love that the dog in the first one looks like a grumpy old man. Dossi.

Ben said...

Braque. But it was close.

Dossi comes on with sumptuous colors in the top...but what's up with those weird people in the upper left? He's lost it to Braque, Braque co-founder of cubism and he stuck with it, Braque can set a scene, just look at him go, set a scene and dice it up and serve it back to you in ways you never imagined, he's left even teammates Pablo and Juan behind, and there he--BRAQUE SCORES! Braque, up by one and the crowd goes wild.

We've finally got a Dossi I like, but I'm going for Braque just the same.

Dossi, with all sorts of little hearts doodled around his name.

I'm going to give it to Braque. Dossi looks shopped. I should know, I've seen a lot of shops in my time.

The cubist pulled slowly away and eventually led eight votes to four, just in time for me to declare an end to the voting four months later! Braque it is!
