Legendary Painters Quiz

The humanities and history are the two sides of the coin that is culture. Just as politics and world events shape the attitudes of a society, art has a similar effect. This has been especially true in the last few centuries. Certain books have inspired entire social movements.

Paintings and sculptures have become revered as the embodiments of certain nations or ideas. Culture is defined by art as much as it defines art. One of the first major art forms to become widely celebrated in the West was painting.

The craft of depicting something on a canvas is a complicated talent that can take an entire lifetime to master. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why paintings became so beloved in western culture. Not only do they capture certain visual information, many of the most famous artists also find ways to exaggerate the physical reality of their works to evoke broader ideas or moods.

In this quiz, we will be visiting the works of some of the most prolific artists to ever put brush to canvas. Using visual clues as well as factual information, we will ask you to identify either historic painters, some of their most legendary works, or general trivia about a famous artist.
