The Infinite Art Tournament, Round FOUR: Patenier v. Pissarro!

It's the first weekend of an even-numbered month, so here comes the Fourth Round!  This one features two artists who are hot off Third-Round victories over big-name twentieth century painters!  Which one will keep his winning streak going?  Let's find out!

Joachim Patenier (usually "Patinir" these days)
1485ish - 1524
  • Skunked German Expressionist Max Hermann Pechstein in Round 1.
  • Beat Francis Picabia in Round 2.
  • Stunned Pablo Picasso with a one-vote victory in Round 3. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

Camille Pissarro
1831 - 1903
Caribbean-born; French
  • Lambasted Andrea Pisano in Round 1.
  • Came from behind to beat 15th century master Pisanello in Round 2.
  • Won easily against Jackson Pollack in Round 3.

Vote for the artist of your choice in the comments, or any other way that works for you. Commentary and links to additional work are welcome. Fourth-round matches are open for at least three months after posting.

Pisarro, by far. And that's not because I dislike the other guy.

Patinier for me.

I like the first guy, especially the final one of his paintings shown. You got three ladies all over this guy, but he looks a little scared. Demon woman and little monkey demon seem to be trying to warn him. That painting rules.

Patenier beat Picasso? ...really? That's...that's....huh. Well...okay. Go big or stay home: I guess I'll say Patenier here. PATENIER ALL THE WAY!

Hey, I like Patinier too. Maybe a little less, since he beat up Picasso. Pissarro for me!

I'm going to go with Pissaro, but same as Morgan -- not because I don't like the first guy. Patenier's really grown on me.

Candida said...

Ooh, tough contest. I really really like Pissarro, but Patenier has some of that old je ne sais quoi going on, so I'll swing his way.

This one goes down to the final vote, and Candida makes it Patenier, six votes to five.
