Art Challenge Me

A friend sent me to the site where ladies and gentlemen can test their knowledge — or absence of it — of well known paintings of famous artists.

Ladies and gentlemen who can guess the authorship of 10 pictures in a row should reward themselves with victorious  Vincerà! in the language of their choice.

Art Challenge was created by Russian art enthusiasts in both Russian and English version.

There is a slight tilt toward Russian painters here, however. Well, then, the worst thing that can happen to a lady should she try it, she might learn a few names of Russian painters she didn’t know before, and inform a gentlemen of her newly acquired knowledge.

Curiously, it was Russian works I stumbled upon the most…


A gentleman shouldn’t be offended if, after a wrong choice, something vaguely offensive pops up, like Hell of a day, huh?, This is crazy!  You are mad! or This is ridiculous! following by the correct answer. A literal translation carries no offensive connotation whatsoever. Russians are self-deprecating to a fault sometimes.

And, finally – Vincerà! – I did it — 10 out of 10!

  1. I’ve been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this website. Thanks, I’ll try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your site? gabggdeebagk

    • Thanks for visiting. I blog rather often as of late — whenever something or another seems to be of interest to me and I either have an opinion of my own or find other peoples’ opinions worthy of thought and share.
