Heather | 8385 comments Why is Vermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earring" considered a masterpiece?

"Is she turning towards you or away from you? No one can agree. She’s the subject of Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer’s "Girl with the Pearl Earring," a painting often referred to as the ‘Mona Lisa of the North.’ But what makes this painting so captivating? James Earle explains how this work represents the birth of a modern perspective on economics, politics, and love. "

Heather | 8385 comments The Case For Andy Warhol

"You've heard his name. You've seen the Campbell's Soup cans. You might know something about The Factory. But perhaps you've wondered why Andy Warhol gets so much attention or why his work even matters. The Art Assignment takes a closer look at the work and legacy of this extraordinarily influential artist. "

There is a little quiz at the end of the short video presentation (that I found interesting). The quiz is very easy but kind of fun! See how you do!
