About This Quiz

Artists have existed for thousands of years across the globe, working to portray human emotion in visual form. Some of these pieces have become incredibly famous, and others that are being created now will only be famous long after we are gone from this earth. 

Art is personal, open to interpretation, and what the artist originally intended can get lost over time or be immortal. Works can take on different meaning depending on how we feel and interpret visual cues, even if what they mean to us isn't what they meant to the artist. As people develop personalities and different likes and dislikes, pretty much everything can conform to that personality, good or bad. 

Going to a museum is like taking a ride in a time machine. All of the paintings you look at are a piece of history, even if it's a history we don't know or remember. The energy that gets passed on from a painter's hand through the brush to the canvas is electrified when your eyes meet it, especially for the first time. You make an impression of it right away, and that impression may please our delight you. But at the very least, it will make you think.
