The Infinite Art Tournament, Round One: Leighton v. Modersohn-Becker!

It's First Round First Week in the Infinite Art Tournament.  As things get back to normal after the holidays and we all catch up on our household chores and deferred voting, we'll feature a week of nothing but First Round matches.  It will help with the timing and such.

British

Tied with Fernand L├ęger in his first try at Round One.




-----
Paula Modersohn-Becker
1876 - 1907

Leighton, by far.

Ooh, it's a TIE! Leighton and M-B lock up at five votes apiece. That will cause some crazy doings down the road, and we'll see them again as they reenter the tournament later in the year.
