The Infinite Art Tournament, First Elimination Round #41/64

Faceoff #1: Lawrence v. Moore

Sir Thomas Lawrence
1769 - 1830

Tied with Marie Laurencin in his First Round debut in July 2014.
Lost badly to Fernand Léger in his second try.


Henry Moore
1898 - 1986

Lost badly to Claude Monet in Round 1.

Faceoff #2: Morandi v. Moroni

Giorgio Morandi
1890 - 1964

Lost to Gustave Moreau in Round 1.


Giovanni Battista Moroni
1520ish - 1578

Lost by a two vote swing to Berthe Morisot in Round 1. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!

Vote for the two artists of your choice! Votes generally go in the comments, but have been known to arrive by email, by postcard, or in a sealed envelope.

Please note that you may vote only once in each face-off.  Opining that both of the artists in one of the two face-offs is superior to the other is fine, but casting your votes for two artists in the same face-off is not permissible.

I would choose Joshua Reynolds over Moore, but not Lawrence.

Lawrence, Moroni, with distinct lack of enthusiasm.

I'll take Moore and Morandi, easily, over the two perfectly competent portrait guys.

Me too: I'll take Moore and Morandi, semi-easily, over the two perfectly competent portrait guys.

So, we've got Moore over Lawrence, eight votes to three. You can still vote on the lower contest for a few days, if you're arriving at the party late.

And Morandi drifts by Moroni in the bottom contest, six votes to five. And that closes down this particular phase of the operation!
