The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Third-Round Elimination: Banksy v. Klimt!

What do Banksy and Klimt have in common?  Constituencies in the IAT voting pool, obviously, and a resentment of Paul Klee, the main who knocked both of them into the Left Brackets.

To get here this week, Banksy knocked out photography Henri Cartier Bresson, who went 3-2 in the main tournament after making it in through the Play-In Tournament; for all of his success, he is I believe only the second Play-In artist to bid us adieu.  Falling to Klimt was Anish Kapoor, who compiled a record of 2-2.

b. 1974

Gustav Klimt
1862 - 1918

Susan says "Banksy. Makes no sense from an aesthetic point of view, but I'll do what little I can to keep Banksy in the running."

I like Bansky, but here's where I can't do it. Klimt Klimt.

Me, I'm not really much of a Klimt fan, but at least I understand why he's worthy of notice, so I'll go with him.
