Left Bracket Fourth Round Elimination GRUDGE MATCH: Turner v. Toulouse-Lautrec!

This would be the Left Bracket Fourth Round Elimination Match between J.M.W. Turner (4-1, 49-18, .731) and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (6-1, 60-31, .659). They defeated Ghirlandaio (4-2-2, 53-42, .558) and Jean Tinguely (3-2, 29-28, .509), respectively, to get here.

It is a GRUDGE MATCH, ladies and gentlemen -- these two fellows met five seasons ago, in the halcyon days of June 2017, and Mr. Turner won that round.  This time around, the French painter needs to win outright.  A tie will go to Turner on the strength of his earlier win.

J.M.W. Turner
1775 - 1850

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
1864 - 1901

I'm a fan of both of these artists. Sad to see that one of them has to go! I'm in a particularly Toulouse-Lautrec mood this morning, so it's an easy vote for him, but I probably would have swung that way regardless.

I'm going to my flip my vote from their last match-up to Toulouse-Lautrec. Turner's last here is probably my favorite, but I just love Lautrec's colors and movement. And a lot of Turner's are kinda boring, like #3 and #4 above. Elliott casts his vote for Toulouse-Lautrec too.
