The Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Third Round: the Master of Moulins v. Moreau!

The Master of Moulins has had an odd Tournament career, never really getting to compete against someone his own age.  This round is as close as he's come, as he faces up against Gustave Moreau, who lived only four centuries after him.  The Master is 3-1-1, Moreau -- who has also only faced relatively young competition -- is 2-1.  Which one of them will add another victory, and which will exit stage left?

Master of Moulins (probably Jean Hay)
late fifteenth century

Gustave Moreau
1826 - 1898
  • Beat Giorgio Morandi in Round 1.
  • Defeated impressionist Berthe Morisot in Round 2 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
  • Clobbered by Claude Monet in Round 3.

The Master of Moulins continues his string of, well, mastery, taking Moreau down by a count of seven votes against three. Who knows what his next pairing will be! Well, I suppose I do. It's Berthe Morisot. It happens next Tuesday. See you there!
