Your Friday Afternoon Art Challenge - Jeopardy Style Edition


CTYankee is busy this week, so I've been put in charge of shaking up the Friday Art Quiz.

This time it's "Jeopardy Style"

I'll post the answers, and you have to post the pictures!


Ready?

#1 - Oh, I've seen that before, but can't remember it

#2 - Definitely Not Caravaggio

#3 - It looks like something in the Sistine Chapel, but instead it's from somewhere you never heard of.

#4 - The Dutch Guy!

#5 - Wasn't that one stolen from somewhere in Norway?

#6 - I'm pretty sure its a Mucha, but it might not be.

13. The last one is John Everett Millais

Who, like Alphonse Mucha, painted advertising illustrations.

I said I was playing games.

But I'm sorry about #1. Everybody remembers that one as "Nude Descending a Staircase"

You NAILED #5 though.

22. It's taken from inside the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague...

 

Not sure if that would be considered back or front...probably front...and this is from 2002, and a VERY inadequate digital camera, which I had at the time.

23. That's not the one you have to practically go through a restaurant to get into?

 


I got ripped off there.

I was excited to find out we would see the "Horlodge", and all they showed us was an old clock.

24. NO, you don't need to go through a restaurant...it's the huge cathedral

 

on the Castle Hill that you can see from every angle...there are lots of smaller shops and stuff around it, but no need to go through any of them to enter...

25. Ohhh.... that one

 

On the other side of the river.

I tried to get into the Kafka Museum, but they kept letting other people in while telling me it was closed.

True story: The tour guide was telling us about that ruckus where the dudes were thrown out of the window, and looked at me and said, "Do you know what is 'defenestration'?", but with her accent, it sounded to us like she said "deep penetration", and I was like, "Lady, I'm here with my wife."

29. Almost, but....

 

For it to look like the Sistine Chapel, you have to have the famous Sistine Chapel Floor, which is well-known to almost anyone with scoliosis who visits the Vatican
