The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Second-Round Elimination GRUDGE MATCH: Wood v. Wright of Derby!


I don't know if we're going to see many more Grudge Matches, so enjoy the excitement while you've got it!  Grant Wood won against Wright of Derby in his first outing, but one thing followed another and here we are, three rounds later, with the same opponents squaring off against each other.  History shows us that the original winner usually prevails again in a Grudge Match, but not always... and not lately.  Let's see what happens this time, shall we?  Remember, there are no ties in a Grudge Match -- if both artists get the same number of votes, Mr. Wood wins on the strength of his previous victory.



Grant Wood
1892 - 1942
American





Joseph Wright of Derby
1734 - 1797
British

I voted for Wood last time. Seeing how neither artist has changed since then, it must be something inside myself that has changed. Wright of Derby.

I vote Wright. More power, more darkness, more animation, more to draw you in. Wood's work always struck me as decent but, no pun intended, wooden.

I like Mr. of Derby, but Wood is quirky and special. Stone City, Iowa, the top one here, is one of my favorite landscapes ever.
