The Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Third Round: Morisot v. Mucha!

Here's a long-delayed match that was kept on ice by the Munch/Nash tie and the subsequent Nash/Master of Moulins tie.  Half a year since we saw them last, Berthe Morisot re-enters the fray with a victory over Fernand Léger , taking on Alphonse Mucha, fresh off a pasting at the hands of American Norman Rockwell.

Berthe Morisot
1841 - 1895

Alphonse Mucha
1860 - 1939
  • Stunned the well-known Norwegian Edvard Munch in Round 1.
  • Beat old Spanish master Bartolomé Murillo in Round 2.
  • Crushed by Norman Rockwell in Round 3.

I vacillated quite a bit but came out on the side of Mucha.

Morisot, a bit lukewarmly

Oh, Morisot by a mile.

It seems like an art nouveau kind of day, so, Mucha. Ask again tomorrow and I might flip flop.

Mucha is a just too much at times. Morisot.

Susan votes for Morisot

Mucha is a really strong craftsperson, but Morisot is in a different league. A more getting-my-vote league.

That was close! Very close! But Morisot takes the match, five votes to four, and will continue the long, long struggle that we call the Infinite Art Tournament.
