Henri Cartier-Bresson and Anselm Kiefer both enter this contest with two wins and one loss. Oddly, they have beaten the same two artists: Ellsworth Kelly and Richard Parkes Bonington. Kelly and Bonington, of course, leave the Tournament this week on their second loss.
It's a risky business, predicting future Tournament success from past performance. But it's worth noticing that Cartier beat Kelly and Bonington by a lot, and Kiefer beat them, just barely. We'll see if that means anything when the voting settles.
