Infinite Art Tournament, Left Bracket Round Three TIEBREAKER: Bellows v. Ingres!

Here's the other half of the tiebreaker that we launched the day before yesterday.  Long-timers will now have seen George Bellows more than almost anyone else in the Tournament, but they sure haven't seen him recently.

George Bellows
1882 - 1925

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres
1790 - 1867
  • Beat Victorian painter William Holman Hunt by a two-vote swing in Round 1. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
  • Crushed Alexander Ivanov in Round 2.
  • Lost to Edward Hopper in Round 3.
  • Tied with Jacob Jordaens in the Left Bracket Third Round. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

Bellows all the way. I love the gritty nature of them. Also, that boxer is landing a nice elbow in a boxing match. That would be perfectly legal in a UFC fight that wouldn't happen until 50 years later.

Wow! I'm so glad to see homeboy Bellows getting some love! I adore his lithographs. I like Ingres except that he seems to add extra vertebrae.

Bellows. Truly no contest there. Poor Ingres.

Bellows. Although I like that Ingres did a version of that "It's her fucking nipple" manga page
