The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Third-Round Elimination: Renoir v. Rivera!



Time for another collision between two big-name painters from which only one can survive... unless there's a tie, of course.  Both Renoir and Rivera have lost a match, and both to the same guy: Rembrandt.  

Leaving the Tournament after his Third Round match with Renoir is Sir William Orpen (2-2-1; 28-31).  Rivera got here by beating Auguste Rodin (3-2, 31-21).



Pierre Auguste Renoir
1841 - 1919
French






Diego Rivera
1886 - 1957
Mexican
  • Crushed Luca Della Robbia in Round 1.
  • Beat José de Ribera in Round 2 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
  • Lost a squeaker to some cat named Rembrandt in Round 3.
  • Beat Auguste Rodin in the Left Bracket Third Round by another two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!

I like that last Rivera best of these pictures. But I still like Renoir a little better on balance.

I am in precise solidarity with the 5000 vote for Renoir on this one.

The Renoir comeback starts too late and doesn't get far enough, and the polls close with Rivera on top, eight votes to six. Renoir bows out with a highly respectable 4-2-2 record, with 56 votes for and 44 against. And Rivera stays in!
