A Gallery of Green Art. Can you guess the artists?

November 16, 2012 — 5 Comments

Once again it’s time for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme: GREEN.  Since my photography is not really meant to speak for itself, here’s a Gallery of Green Art with a quiz. See if you can match the artist and/or relevant information to each of the images.

1. Van Gogh close-up at Chicago Art Institute
2. Some dude in flip-flops (at the John Lennon wall in Prague)
3. Monet close-up at Chicago Art Institute
4. NOT Monet (but could have inspired him). Taken in Czech Republic.
5. British people, who think anything can be made pretty and weird, even cannons!
6. Hans Christian Andersen (and me!). Technically he’s the subject, not the artist. Copenhagen
7. Me imitating Alfred Henry Maurer
8. Collaboration between Frank Stella and Santiago Calatrava hanging in building designed by Mies van der Rohe (yes!)
9. Unknown Art Nouveau artist, but maybe Alphonse Mucha, since it’s at an absinthe bar in Prague.
10. Frank Lloyd Wright
11. John Cage (okay, well, my winnings at a John Cage exhibit at DOX museum in Prague)

(If you REALLY need the answers, post a comment in which you beg for them. Be convincing.)

    I’m wondering if you could name the photographer in #6. She or he has captured an amazing moment in time. 🙂

    Thank you for your observant comment, “Cella” (if that is your real name). I believe the photographer of #6 was also the photographer of #5. Either way, the photographers are related and both very talented and awesome, and I’m glad you noticed. I will pass on your comment to the photographer, whose name I would tell you, but it is probably only a pseudonym for her real name, and where would that get you? xoxo
