The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Second-Round Elimination: Ghiberti v. Hunt!


Alexander Ivanov and Raoul Dufy both won in the First Round, but they've been knocked out now; Lorenzo Ghiberti and William Holman Hunt both started with a loss, but have each piled up a pair of wins to keep alive.

Now, Hunt has just beaten Dufy, and it was Dufy who handed Ghiberti his loss.  That would seem to give Hunt a pretty good shot at staying alive into the Third Round.  But Tournament watchers know that the transitive property is often suspended in the tough world of democratic art appreciation.  Let the voting begin, and the dust settle where it may!





Lorenzo Ghiberti
1378 - 1455
Florentine






William Holman Hunt
1827 - 1910
British

I'll go for the colorful and lusty Hunt, although I DO like the Ghiberti works.

Yea, Ghiberti has faded for me, while Hunt's silliness has grown. Plus, sheep.

Hunt beats Dufy, Dufy beats Ghiberti, Ghiberti... TIES Hunt, after giving up a 6-1 lead in the late voting. With six votes each way, this one deadlocks and will await another tie in Second Round Elimination!
