The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Second-Round Elimination: Rubens v. Sluter!


The main thing that Rubens and Sluter have in common, from an Art-Historical point of view, is that they have both been burned by Michiel Sittow in this Tournament.  They meet here in Second Round Elimination, and only one of them can survive.  But whoever wins this one, if they can beat Sodoma in the next one, and if Sittow beats the winner of Spilliaert/Smith (no spoilers, but I sure bet he will), then they will have a chance to turn the tables on Sittow!  Never a dull moment.



Sir Peter Paul Rubens
1577 - 1640
Flemish





Claus Sluter
1380ish - 1405
Dutch; worked in France.

The 100% no contest best sculptor in the tournament, vs. some guy who made some mediocre paintings? Yeah, I'll have to go with Claus Sluter.

Rubens. I'm just drawn to paintings more than sculpture.
