The Infinite Art Tournament, First Elimination Round #54/64

Faceoff #1: Segal v. Severini

George Segal
1924 - 2000

Lost to Richard Serra in Round 1.


Gino Severini
1883 - 1966
Italian; worked in France

Lost to Georges Seurat in Round 1.

Faceoff #2: Sherman v. Sickert

Cindy Sherman
Born 1954

Lost to Charles Sheeler in Round 1.


Walter Sickert
1860 - 1942

Beaten by Jan Siberechts in Round 1.

Vote for the two artists of your choice! Votes generally go in the comments, but have been known to arrive by email, by postcard, or in a sealed envelope.

Please note that you may vote only once in each face-off.  Opining that both of the artists in one of the two face-offs is superior to the other is fine, but casting your votes for two artists in the same face-off is not permissible.

I'll go for the popular "Severini, Sherman" ticket.

This is kind of an "IWICVFTF2A" (I wish I could vote for the first two artists) contest for me, but I'll go Severini/Sickert.

And, time's up! Severini takes down Segal 8 votes to 2; Sherman hangs on against Sickert, 6 votes to 4. And we move on to Round Two! Except Segal and Sickert, who don't.
