About This Quiz
The history of art is a history of revolutions. There’s usually an initial group dictating how they want to see the world, and then various new artists usurp traditions with a fresh way to capture the world on canvas. That is, until that artistic vision becomes the norm and the process repeats itself.
Whether you are an art connoisseur or find the world of art fascinating, you’ll enjoy learning about all the styles that flourished throughout history. This quiz, with 50 well-known and extraordinary paintings will provide a quick overview of some of the most famous examples of artistic methods.
From the subject of the painting itself to the color scheme and brush techniques, there is so much more to know about each style of art. You may be someone who gravitates to the High Renaissance period classics such as "Mona Lisa" or "The Last Supper" by Leonardo Da Vinci. Or you may be swept up by emotion when you see “Large Blue Horses,” a painting from the Expressionism era that symbolizes subjective, personal, and spontaneous paintings that evoke different moods. Then there is Cubism, Surrealism, Constructivism and Fauvism, just to name a few of the artistic styles that will be touched upon in the quiz. Take it now and appreciate artwork even more tomorrow.
