The Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Second Round TIEBREAK: Gaddi v. Longhi!

At vote-counting time, there was a tie in the Left Brackets between Longhi and Lorenzo Monaco.  That means that Taddeo Gaddi and Théodore Géricault, who tied up similarly about a year ago, can finally re-enter the fray.  Here's the first of the two tiebreak matches!

Gaddi, despite Longhi's fine rhino.

And for me: Gaddi, despite the fine rhino.

As often happens to me, as I was scrolling through Gaddi, I kept thinking, "Nobody could possibly take it from Gaddi!" And then I hit Longhi and started thinking that I had spoken too soon. The rhino, sure, but the masks!

Still, there was a spark of life missing for me in Longhi, so I'm sticking with Gaddi.

And, it's Gaddi in a landslide! He takes the contest, 10 votes to 2. Say good-bye to the nice rhino, everybody....
