This is a game, similar to the Lyrics Quiz discussion in the Bandstand group.

The rules are simple: someone posts the depiction of a work of art (painting, sculpture, pottery, architecture, etc.), and a question others have to answer to, in order to take their turn.

To stick to the group's theme (A TRICK OF THE EYE), the work must have an aesthetic component to it. I know this is very subjective, so use common sense here and try to avoid readymades, shock art and meta-art if possible.

Searching the internet is OK, and even encouraged. The idea here is to have you to look for and discover new stuff.

Let's start with this:


You have to guess the author and the title.

No idea. Time for a hint?
Barbara Hepworth. Two Forms (not sure about this one.)


Artist and title.
AKA Monsieur Cactus here. A fine guy who deserves to not be known. Well, unless you're a fakir.

Your move.
Jean Cocteau?
Grayson Perry? I'm not familiar with his work at all, but I know he does ceramics, and that he's famous for a large tapestry depicting a journey through life. It could well be this one. Plus he's both English (aha!) and still young - and thus, probably still breathing.


Who and where?
And it's located in St. Helens. Not only do I share a first name with the artist, but the city I happen to live in was named after Saint Helen. I found these coincidences amusing.

Your turn.
Max Ernst, Celebes


Title and artist?
Panel of the Descent into Limbo, from the Altarpiece of the Convent of Santo Sepulchro, Zaragoza
by Jaume Serra
Zut alors! I thought this one wouldn't be that easy to figure out!

Your turn.
