The Infinite Art Tournament, Round FOUR Tiebreak: Kandinsky v. Benton
Third Thursday: Bringing big names to your mid-month!
This is an unusual Third Thursday matchup, which is perhaps appropriate given the confusion surrounding which Thursday was actually the third one of the month. Nor is this quite a Semifinal match, although it might as well be.
According to plan, today... or perhaps last Thursday, whatever... was to be the Fifth Round match between the winners of Leonardo/Lissitsky and Benton/Goldsworthy. But! The Benton/Goldsworthy match ended in a tie. So what we're going to do today is launch the first half of the tiebreaker that pits Benton and Goldsworthy against the artists in our other Round 4 tie, Kandinsky and Klee. We'll do Klee/Goldsworthy at the regularly scheduled Round 4 spot in February, after which everything should calm down and get back to normal.
OH NO there has been an error of misattribution!!! Probably by me!! And there is nothing to be done for it except, as alert amateur art historian Matt Reilly suggests in the comments, a REDO!!! Eventually.
