People have been painting since the beginning of time. Ancient cave art depicts all sorts of images, from hand prints to human shapes to animals. While the names of those artists, are lost, we have better records from more recent centuries. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo dominated the late 1400s and early 1500s. Rembrandt appeared in the 1600s, while the following century would introduce names like Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, and Edgar Degas. While these painters are well-known in the art world, their actual work might be more easily recognizable.
Who could forget the image of Mona Lisa or The Last Supper? Waterlilies is so iconic that it has been reproduced on everything from prints to mugs to bedspreads, while the classics such as The Starry Night ,Girl with a Pearl Earring, and American Gothic captivate millions. Meanwhile fabulous murals decorate the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel.
When given these paintings, could you name the artist? What about if we make it easier with three? From the early paintings of Leonardo da Vinci to the more recent abstracts of Jackson Pollock, could you name the artist if given three of their works? Let's find out if you can paint your way to a perfect score!
