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.

This is a close-up. Only one of the subjects can be seen. I need the artist and the title

Wild guess: Beato Angelico - The Annunciation

(carol, when you start a new quiz, please post in the main 'reply' box - the one above the 'Replies to This Discussion' section. It'll make the thread more readable.)
OOps I knew that. I just wasn't paying attention.....I guess this one was too easy...I call him Fra Angelico, but you got it!! Give us something good. Here's the whole painting.


Artist only.

Hint #1: I intentionally left one in the JPEG image file name.
Hint #2: the artist is best known for their silhouettes.
Like these ones:

Kara Walker
Your move.
How funny, I've met this artist. Her father Larry Walker was one of my painting professors when I was finishing up my Masters. He was a wonderful teacher.
Artist only
