The Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Third Round: Van Doesburg v. Manet!

Theo Van Doesburg had a inauspicious start in the tournament, tying his first First Round against William Dobson, who subsequently sunk like a stone.  But after losing his second First Round match, against Ernst Haeckel, Van Doesburg has put together a series of three wins to stay alive in the Left Brackets.

Today, he meets Manet, a big-name painter who arrives here after a Round Three upset versus Timothy Ely.  Who will stay alive to take on the winner of Man Ray/Marc?  Let's find out, starting right now.



Theo Van Doesburg
1883 - 1931
Dutch






Édouard Manet
1832 - 1883
French
  • Thumped on Minimalist Robert Mangold in Round 1.
  • Overcame Andrea Mantegna in Round 2.
  • Lost to living American Tim Ely in Round 3 by a single vote. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

I wouldn't vote for Van Doesburg here, but I can see the appeal. Manet for me.

I think it's neat that van Doesburg has survived so long in this tournament, and I'm not an especial fan of Manet. But, yeah, Manet here.

I was leaning towards van Doesburg until I scrolled down far enough to see Manet.
