The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Fourth-Round Elimination: Avercamp v. Fra Angelico!





This Left Bracket Fourth Round Elimination Match features Hendrick Avercamp (6-1-3, 80-51, .611) and Fra Angelico (4-1, 41-28, .594). They got here by defeating Basquiat (3-2, 33-35, .485) and Beckman (4-2, 44-40, .524), respectively. Avercamp is making his eleventh Tournament appearance, which I believe is a new record.

Both artists have won against Sofonisba Anguissola, which is saying something.  Fra Angelico beat Arcimboldo, however, while Avercamp only fought him to a draw.  Let's see how they fare against each other.  What do YOU think?

  • Defeated Florentine master Andrea del Sarto in Round 1 by a decisive but respectful margin.

  • Made it past Arcimboldo in Round 3.
  • Lost to Albrecht Altdorfer in Round 4 by a two-vote swing. YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!
  • Beat Max Beckmann in the Left Bracket Fourth Round.

Avercamp's fun, but he's skated way out onto the thin ice at this point. I vote for the Fra.
