The Infinite Art Tournament frees art appreciation from the straitjackets of chronology and categorical conventions in order to place it in a new straitjacket of its own devising. The IAT further seeks to delight its community of bracingly intelligent and drop-dead sexy readers with glib but cheerful dispatches from the worlds of literature, film, the visual arts, music, Shakespeare, chemistry, postal ephemera, vexillology, and hagiography.

If it weren't for ties, this would be the match where the winner of Laurencin/Matta took on the loser of Metsu/Michelangelo.  But there were ties.  So, we've got Raeburn (who beat Laurencin) against Zorn (who lost to Metsu) in a interestingly lopsided match.  Raeburn has been in seven previous Tournament m

It's GRUDGE MATCH time!!!   Whistler beat up on Wilkie pretty badly the first time around, but, well, we've looked at a lot of art since then, and the palette is always getting more sophistercated, and who knows!  Maybe Wilkie can muster more votes the second time around!  But remember the Grudg

The Infinite Art Tournament Left Bracket Second-Round Elimination: Vigée Le Brun v. de Vlaminck!

As far as French Baroque painter Simon Vouet is concerned, the only good thing about today's match is that it's going to eliminate one of the two guys who knocked him out of the Tournament. That's why they call it elimination! Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun is hot off of two big wins after losing her opener to M.C. Es
