Modern Art Quiz: Real or Fake?


"Some of the images displayed are True Masterpieces of Abstract Art, created by Immortal Artists. They carry profound meanings, which are, however, beyond the apprehensions of the vulgar. The rest were produced by the author of the quiz. They mean nothing. After each picture indicate what it is. Hit the Submit button when done. The quiz will be graded and you will see the correct answers."

Not to mention learn how to make your own abstract masterpieces in 5 minutes or less! (Don't forget to name it in French!)

Not bad... I only missed 1! I hadn't recognized the Klee. Hmmm, there may be something to this whole modern art thing after all... :-)

Still, might explain why "during Modigliani's short and difficult life, the going rate for his elegant, oddly distorted paintings was less than $10, and takers were few. A landlord who confiscated some of his work in lieu of rent used the canvases to patch old mattresses" !
