The Semi-Finals: Homer v. Kahlo!





"Semifinals" designates the Fourth to Seventh Rounds of the Infinite Art Tournament.  This is a Left Bracket Fourth Round Match between Winslow Homer (5-1, 56-22, .718) and Frida Kahlo (3-1, 33-23, .589).  Leaving the Tournament after falling to Homer in a grudge match -- after beating him by a vote in their first meeting -- is Pieter De Hooch (3-2, 26-30, .464).

This is some star power! We must be getting down to the Elite Eight. I'm a big fan of Winslow Homer. I have to give him the nod in this one.

Homer, in a not very easy decision. But I guess I'm more of a classicist.

Homer, Kahlo still does nothing for me.

Khalo. I do like Homer but my allegiances both to female and Mexican artists might win out here even if I didn't like Khalo's art significantly more.

Homer.

Homer wins this match, ten votes to three. He'll continue on to another tough match -- Homer has probably had one of the toughest schedules of anyone in the Tournament -- and Kahlo bows out after a enviable 3-2 run.
