The Infinite Art Tournament, Round Two: Popova v. Poussin!


We had a First Round tie today, which as always had shuffled up the ol' brackets a bit.  It was the Leighton/Modersohn-Becker bout, which now has the distinction of being the only First Round tiebreaker (so far) to itself end up in a tie; those two are having a really, really tough time getting into the swing of the Tournament. 



Ljubov Popova
1889 - 1924
Russian

Beat Jacopo Pontormo in in Round 1.







Nicolas Poussin
1594 - 1665
French; worked in Italy

Defeated American sculptor Hiram Powers in Round 1.

Poussin, but they're both strong.

I guess the 1240's are really boring, huh?

And Poussin carries the day, taking it back with those final two votes. The damage is six votes for Poussin, five for Popova. If you think it should have gone the other way, you should have been here sooner!
