Art Madness II: Round one begins!

Pin It

It’s time to begin the voting in MAN’s Art Madness II: America Picks the Greatest Post-War Artwork Tournament! Each day this week I’ll feature four first-round match-ups. Today we’ll start with the top half of the draw, with a much tougher No. 1 vs. No. 64 match-up you’ll see in any wimpy little basketball tournament: Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty (1970) vs. Willem de Kooning’s first figurative masterpiece, Woman (1948, at right, collection of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden).

(Also, you may have heard that this year’s NCAA men’s basketball season has been taken over by referees. MAN is a zebra-free zone.)
