Just curious... my artist knowledge is minimal, so without looking do you know who this is?

Have you joined the soon to be #1 leaderboard on the site? If you ever enjoyed 360voice(or even if you haven't been there), please join:

Just to clarify, you do mean without looking on Google, correct?

The way the thread title is written seems to say otherwise.

P.S. Never tell me the odds.
Ironically this image is one of the rotating stock background images on my Mac.

There are only two obvious answers there, so at 50% rate.. looks like everyone else thinks that's the artist too.

I was told by a friend that they were surprised that a couple of these artists could be confused... Based on current results, it looks like at least three...

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!?!?!?!?!

Claude Monet and Georges Seurat are confused by people?

Monet was a Impressionist best known for his series of 250 paintings of Water Lilies (Example below)


Seurat was a post-impressionist who created pointillism and is best know for Sunday Afternoon of the Island of Le Grande Jatte
(See above)

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but, now I am sad...
(And honestly, I don't necessarily expect people to know Seurat, but, I do actually expect people to know Monet, and know that the two styles are not similar.)

Maybe I am too close, my favorite paintings, by my favorite artists are:

Sunday Afternoon on the Island of Le Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat, a post impressionist developer of Pointillism


Bedroom in Arles by Vincent Van Gogh, another post impressionist and divisionist:


Lady in Blue by Henri Matisse, a neo impressionist who delved into many styles:


Sunday Afternoon and Bedroom in Arles are both in Chicago at the Art Institute, and I have been numerous times and enjoyed my time in front of each. Lady in Blue is in a private collection, and I have never been able to see it in person.

(We do have two prints of Sunday Afternoon in our house, one is a 1/8 scale print and the other is a 1/16 scale, the original is HUGE and I try to talk the wife into a full scale print...)
And you still can't name it!

I was horribly wrong, I suck at art. Good thing I can count beans...

Join the leaderboard that is *actually* #1 on the site! All friends of mine are welcome and anyone who prefers poptarts over fish!
I obviously spend too much time playing games and not enough time studying art. For some reason, I seem to be okay with that. Smile

Any Impressionist styles are all crap and if you have to explain to me why it's so great or what something is "supposed to represent" then you are a talentless hack. If those people were here today I would call them little emo bitches and they need to get a real job.

Italian Renaissance is where real talents artists are, not depressed losers who cut off their own ears. To me, that's the best, but I like various Realism or Rococo stuff. You know, something that looks like a talented person did it, not my 10 year old. I guess I have to say I like Baroque as well but I couldn't tell you looking at painting if it was Baroque or Renaissance. So here's my counter examples..

Rococo
Venus and Nymphs Bathing by French artist Louis Jean-Francois Lagrenee, 1776


Italian Renaissance
Michelangelo, The Creation of Adam, Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, fresco, 1508-1512


Realism
Gustave Courbet, Fox In the Snow, 1860


Baroque
Peter Paul Rubens, The Union of Earth and Water, c. 1618


Maybe if I took more Art electives instead of Computer Science I'd be more educated. Or maybe I just love looking at pictures of thick naked women. I did marry me a gorgeous thick Italian so that was probably what it is.
