Love these quizzes. Banksy was a great touch (fashizzle ma Brizzle!)

There's more than one way to spell #2

Yes — as @OwenHerring says, please accept Velasquez, a fairly common alternative spelling.

Here's another good art quiz: http://www.sporcle.com/games/jonesjeffum/artistportrait

Wow, when I saw this quiz, I immediately thought Scream and Mona Lisa would be on here, but I guess those would have been to easy to guess. Great quiz by the way.

@BuddyBoy77, they're in "Artist by Painting (1)". This is the sequel.

Only got 13, and that's with a good Art History class. Turns out that was a great score! VERY tough quiz. Didn't recognize a lot of the paintings even if I knew the artists' names.

Accept 'Géricault' for Géricault. (It's how it appears in the answers, so the argument that 'accents don't work on Sporcle' is once again disproven...)

Apologies for the self quiz plug. I just couldn't resist replying to Donatello with that one.

Suggest accepting "Le Douanier Rousseau"

Memories of a misspent youth...thank you...

Great quiz. It would also be good to include the title of each of the paintings; there may be a lot more to look at (especially in the case of Bosch).

Learned me how to spell Gauguin!

Oh, Albrecht, Albrecht Dürer, Du reitest durch die Lande. Oh, Albrecht, Albrecht Dürer, Du Held mit Deiner Bande. Gefürchtet von den Bösen, Geliebt von allen Guten, Guten, Du Dürer Albrecht, Du.

You should accept "Dürer" for "Dürer".
