About This Quiz

Is your soul as chaotic and weirdly serene as Van Gogh's "Starry Night," or are you as calming as Monet's "Water Lilies"? Let's examine the brushstrokes of your inner self and find out which painting is an accurate reflection of you. We think you might be just as surprised as the figure in "The Scream" when you find out.

From Da Vinci's anatomical work to the surrealism of Salvador Dali, works of art have reflected our lifestyles and challenged our imaginations. Colorful renditions of our everyday condition and our dreams have been manifested on canvas and forced us to think beyond ourselves. Since your soul speaks for you in the same way, it only makes sense to find out which painting represents you and your soul the best. 

As we go through the quiz, we will refrain from deeply testing your knowledge of art and art history. Instead, we will focus on the way you handle yourself during your days and the things you think at night. After we get to know you better, we will do a little comparative analysis to present your soul-painting with accuracy. 

Share a little of yourself with us, and we'll assign the famous painting that reflects your soul the best!
