An artist or an ape?

Take a fun little quiz to see if you can tell whether each painting was created by man or monkey. I did okay: just one wrong, where I gave an ape too much credit.

Did you give the first one (blue/white/black with a little red) too much credit, too?

Oh my! I got 100% right! Does that make me an artist or an ape?

I got 100%. However, I thought they ALL looked like they were done by apes. ;-)

ha, I just kind of clicked through, and I got 100% too! I thought that one looked a little Jackson Pollock-ish.

Carrie said...

Whee, 100% correct. Guess those Art History courses did pay off! I like that Jackson Pollack.

I noticed that you will always put something that looks like done by an ape and I will always guess correctly:)

Actually I think the differenc between these painting done by artists or apes are really nothing expect people would only buy the former. At least I can't appreaciate those paintings.

I got 100%! Maybe that Art History degree comes in handy for something!

Jess said...

Yeah, Erica! It was the first one with the blue and black that threw me off!

I can see how this could get tricky. Very fun...

I got 100% and I was just guessing --- going with my gut feeling.

have you ever been to this site??? http://www.jacksonpollock.org/

Jess said...

I have! I'm not sure if JP would be honored or horrified. :)

That was intersting... I like the famous or unknown artist test too. Oh, should I shame myself and admit I was 67%? I gave the apes the benefit of the doubt... guess I am sympathetic that way.

jen jen, actually, congo's paintings have sold for a pretty decent amount of money.

they really are gorgeous. and i got 100%, but i already knew the paintings, so that probably doesn't count...
