The Infinite Art Tournament, First Elimination Round #57/64

Faceoff #1: Riopelle v. Stella

Jean-Paul Riopelle
1923 - 2002

Tied with Bridget Riley in his first stab at the First Round.
Lost to Adriaen van Ostade in a second try at Round 1 by a single vote. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!


Frank Stella
born 1936

Lost to Dutch master Jan Steen in Round 1 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

Faceoff #2: Stuart v. Stubbs

Gilbert Stuart
1755 - 1828

Beaten easily by Clyfford Still in Round 1.


George Stubbs
1724 - 1806

Made short work of by Graham Sutherland 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.

And voting's complete here, with Stella delivering a 10-0 skunking on poor Riopelle up top, and Stubbs beating Stuart by a 6-4 two-vote swing down at the bottom. There have only been a handful of skunks in the Tournament; we'll see if Stella can keep up that kind of momentum against Clifford Still this week!
