POP QUIZ: FETCH, SIT, ROLL OVER, POSE
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to email@example.com with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
Okay, I’ll admit it. I ripped this idea off from a TV show.
“University Challenge”, probably the toughest Quiz Show on TV (suck it Jeopardy!), recently had a round on dogs in art. Thing is, they only do three questions in any given category, so even though I swiped their idea, I still had to … you know … come up with some of my own questions. It was like… work, or something.
Here’s the idea: Each of the images below is a detail from a famous painting, showing a dog. From the pooch pictured, identify the artist who painted the full picture, and the title of the artwork in question. Two points per question, total out of twenty.
