About This Quiz

Everyone creates art. However, only a few people become famous and world-renowned for their artwork. While Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Claude Monet, Salvador Dali and Roy Lichtenstein had very different styles, they do have one thing in common: Their work is found in museums around the world. 

An art lover would have to visit The Smithsonian, Le Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Modern Museum of Art and many others to see a fraction of the works that great artists have made. Even if you somehow manage to visit every art museum in the world, you still won't be able to see many works. Some of those pieces have made their way into private collections. When they hit the auction block, those paintings sell for thousands, if not millions, of dollars. Other paintings have been lost to time or destroyed by their creators, who felt that a particular painting should not have been created in the first place or was not their best work.

If you're familiar with art, you're going to enjoy this quiz. Instead of focusing on one art style, this quiz runs the gamut from Pop Art to Impressionism. Will you get all of these questions correct? Or will you forget the real name of "Dogs Playing Poker?"
