The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Third-Round Elimination: GRUDGE MATCH: Rego v. Redon!

Back in Spring of last year, Redon and Rego met in the Second Round.  Rego won a squeaker, six votes to five, but then ran smack into Raphael in the Third Round and fell to the Left Brackets.  Meanwhile, Redon has waited patiently, besting Moholy-Nagy, Modigliani, and Poussin, hoping always for this chance at revenge.

It's a Grudge Match, my friends!  And by the Grudge Match Rule, there can be no tie!  Or rather, if there is a tie, victory goes to Rego on the strength of that initial victory.  Redon has to win outright to stay alive.

Paula Rego
Born 1935
  • Demolished Ad Reinhardt in Round 1.
  • Nicked Odilon Redon by a single vote in Round 2. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
  • Stomped by Raphael in Round 3.
  • Snuck by Ljubov Popova by a two-vote swing in the Left Bracket Third Round. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

Odilon Redon
1840 - 1916

Rego. I don't like here much, but match after match I find myself voting for her.

Last time I voted for Redon. But that was so long ago, and opinions change! Rego.

Rego is one of my favorite "finds" of the whole tournament. And I don't much care for Redon. Easy choice for me.

And it's Rego! Rego flips a voter -- perhaps Morgan -- and ends up on the winning side of another one-vote match! She'll continue her "march to the left," and will try her luck in the Fourth Round next weekend!
