POP QUIZ: I MAY NOT KNOW ART (answers)
We’ve got a hands down winner this week, no doubt about it… Kerri H scored a perfect 20/20 on this gallery of great art. Good eye, Kerri! Actually, both your eyes are perfectly acceptable…
I’m not going to repost the images. They are available for viewing here.
01 EDVARD MUNCH – THE SCREAM (1896)
02 PABLO PICASSO – GUERNICA (1937)
03 REMBRANDT VAN RIJN – THE NIGHT WATCH (1642)
04 JOHANNES VERMEER – GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING (1655)
05 JACKSON POLLOCK – NO 5 (1948)
06 GRANT WOOD – AMERICAN GOTHIC (1930)
07 GEORGIA O’KEEFE – ORIENTAL POPPIES (1928)
08 TOM THOMSON – THE JACK PINE (1916)
09 EMILY CARR – THE CRAZY STAIR (1928)
10 RENE MAGRITTE – THE SON OF MAN (1926)
If I’d been playing this one, I probably would have only got about half of them correct. Mostly artists and not titles. Number ten I’ve seen several times, but I wouldn’t have come up with the answer. To me, Magritte is a TV detective.
