MoMA: Guess the artist, Part 2

MoMA: Guess the artist, Part 2 Image

For my last post MoMA: Guess the artist, Part 1, I shared close-up images of ten works of art currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. The post caught the attention of many art lovers, and I loved the various responses, most of them pretty close to 100% correct.

On a personal note, yesterday I returned to life in Paris! Leaving family and friends back in the US was very difficult, but as I settled into my tiny apartment, I soon felt right at home. Of course, a bottle of wine from my favorite local shop and a few coffee dates in the works helped a bit. A message on my French cell from just before Christmas held a promising lead on an internship for the Spring! Interview is Thursday and if all goes well, I should start right away. Now back to my favorite art history game…

If you have yet to guess yourself, click over to Part 1 before scrolling below. I would hate for the fun to be spoiled.

Here are the paintings! How did you do?

Painting 1

Paul Cézanne, Still Life with Apples, 1985-98

Painting 2

Pablo Picasso, Girl before a Mirror, 1932

Painting 3


Henri Rousseau, The Dream, 1910

Painting 4

Edvard Munch, The Scream, 1895

Painting 5

Constantin Brancusi, Mlle Pogany, 1913

Painting 6

Vincent van Gogh, The Olive Trees, 1889

Painting 7

René Magritte, The False Mirror, 1928

Painting 8

Amedeo Modigliani, Anna Zborowska, 1917

Painting 9

Georges-Pierre Seurat, Evening, Honfleur, 1886

Painting 10

Claude Monet, Water Lilies, 1914-1926

I had a blast putting this post together and am happy it was was so well received! Apparently, it is still not hard enough. The most challenging were the Brancusi, Modigliani and, much to my own satisfaction, the Monet. Plans for another Guess the Artist are in the making with some of Paris’ leading art museums in mind, including the Louvre. Modern Art will be moving over to make room for a few Renaissance and Northern European greats. Hope to see you back!

So what do you think? How did you do?

    I had a little bit of advantage in that I used to be a member of MoMA and go all the time (literally even for just a coffee break in their cafés) when I worked in NY, so I know their permanent collection pretty well! These kinds of “games” are always fun though, I look forward to future ones! 🙂
    Good luck with the internship and all your other plans! 🙂

      Glad you enjoyed it! I try to take breaks in the Paris museums whenever I can but so far no daily café breaks in the Louvre 🙂 I love that you did that in NYC. Hope to do a new post soon! Wish the Musée d’Orsay allowed photos…
