The Infinite Art Tournament, First Elimination Round #42/64

Faceoff #1: Dove v. Motherwell

Arthur Dove
1880 - 1946

Tied with Gerrard Dou in his first attempt at the First Round, back in January 2013.
Lost to Norman Rockwell in a second shot at Round 1.


Robert Motherwell
1915 - 1991

Lost to the Master of Moulins in Round 1.

Faceoff #2: Munch v. Nash

Edvard Munch
1863 - 1944

Upset by Czech art deco guy Alphonse Mucha in Round 1.


Paul Nash
1889 - 1946

Lost at the last second to Murillo 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.

This is the mothership example of both of the bottom over both of the top. But if I must... A google search for Dove makes me like him more; he does have some pretty interesting works. And, I'll vote for Nash while bemoaning the fact that one of these guys is about to get eliminated.

The top contest goes to Dove, who drummed up eight votes against Motherwell's four. The bottom contest is still open for the nonce, if you're late to the party.

And the bottom contest is a TIE, with Munch and Nash garnering exactly six votes apiece. That will send us cascading into tiebreaker mode! Very exciting.
