This round of Guess the Artist featuring works of art from the Tate Modern in London has certainly proved to be the most challenging – just as I had hoped. I was encouraged by all of the comments on the MoMA edition to push it to the next level. I’m happy to have challenged you and, who knows, perhaps you’ll have discovered a few new artists in the process.
I should add that each of these artists are internationally acclaimed Modern and Contemporary masters. If some of the artists below are new to you, than I’m happy to have shared a snapshot of their work.
If you have yet to guess yourself, you can submit them by clicking over to Tate Modern: Guess the Artist, Part 1 before scrolling below. I would hate to spoil your fun!
