The Infinite Art Tournament, Round One: Zuccarelli v. Zurbarán!

At this point, the Infinite Art Tournament would like to thank Phaidon Press for compiling The Art Book, which -- unbeknownst to them -- provided the idea and the basic roster for this complicated art-historical entertainment.  Which is, mind you, far from finished yet.



Francesco Zuccarelli
1702 - 1788
Florentine; worked in Venice and Britain



-----

Francisco de Zurbarán
1598 - 1664
Spanish

An end of an era, and a good pair to go out on! I like them both, I like Zurbaran a bit more.
