Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Round Three TIEBREAKER: Avercamp v. Jordaens!

Hendrick Avercamp was in on the ground floor of the Infinite Art Tournament -- his name, after all, starts with an "A" -- but he's been locked in ties three times, the most recent one in a match that started in November 2014.

Jacob Jordaens, meanwhile, has been running nose-to-nose with Ingres in a separate Left Bracket Third-Rounder since mid-2015. This week, we're going to break up the logjam. Here's Avercamp and Jordaens, vying for the chance to take on the winner of the Anguissola/Agasse match that has been underway since November 2013. On Thursday, we'll see how George Bellows does against Ingres; the winner of that one will take on the winner of the Reni/Bouguereau match that started about five weeks ago. Yes, that seems odd to me too. The brackets are full of wonders and marvels.

I never thought I'd see the day where the world-famous Avercamp/Bellows tie would be resolved! I'll vote Avercamp.
