Last year I had a lot of fun sharing some of my close-up images of paintings at the Centre Pompidou and many of you enjoyed playing a game of “Guess the Artist“. A few days ago I darted up to New York for a day of city-fun with one of my best friends. We were not planning on visiting any of the museums, but that is what I love about MoMA – it is irresistible. And soon we found ourselves lost in the Early Modern Art galleries.
Photographing works of art up close has become a preferred method for me to enjoy museums; I get a chance to zero in on a small portion of an overwhelmingly complex work and really study the layers of paint, grasp the artist’s unique stroke. So there I was in MoMA capturing details of some of my favorite paintings completely lost and content in my own world. Now it’s your chance to be mesmerized! Though you all did so well last time, I’ve tried to make it a bit more challenging.
Here’s how to play: Below are 10 works of art currently on view at MoMA New York. Leave your guesses in a comment below and next week I’ll share the work of art in full and reveal the answers. Bonne chance!

So what do you think? Any guesses?
