About This Quiz

Before the turn of the 19th century, most of the art which was created was commissioned either by the wealthy or by churches and other institutions, because art was too expensive to produce "just for the fun of it."  Not too long after, artists started to create works of art which were based on personal experiences or whatever topic they saw fit.

Modern art includes artistic works (painting, sculptures and drawings) that were created between 1880 and 1970, all of which are in keeping with the Industrialist style and modern advancements made during that time.

Some of the most popular works of art can now be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, the Art Institute of Chicago and the National Gallery in London. Famous pieces include "Starry Night," "Impression Sunrise," "The Scream," "The Persistence of Memory" and "Self-portrait without Beard," all of which are worth millions today.

How well do you know your modern art? You should be able to identify the work done by Renoir, Monet, Picasso and van Gogh, but what about Munch, Cézanne and Gauguin? If you would like to test your knowledge, then this is definitely the quiz for you.
