Heather | 8271 comments So how many times have we heard people say "my 5 year old can do that!" as they look at a particular (usually abstract) piece of art. We know that even abstract art takes skill, but to the untrained eye, it can look like the work for a 5 year old.

I'm going to post some pictures and I want you to guess which of the two is the famous one and which is a child's painting. I'm going to throw in trick here, too. See if you can figure out which one of the following is the tricky one, too. Name that one as you answer the questions and if you can, put your reasoning why you think it's a trick in a spoiler so others can't see your answer.

If you are feeling extra ambitious, you can name the famous artist who painted the painting in the question!


Here we go!

Heather | 8271 comments Okay don't start your guessing yet. I'm not done! This has taken me WAY longer than I suspected and now I have to get ready to go (and my back is killing me!) So I will post more later.
Talk to you soon! A wonderful day to everyone!

Heather | 8271 comments Okay, I'm done. This was a lot more difficult than I had intended! And it will take you a a whole 15 seconds, if that, to answer the questions.
Go ahead if you would like to try! Answer below:

Dirk Van | 2694 comments 15 seconds? Best multiply that ;-)
All right, here my guesses:
1 B = Child
2 not sure but I think A = Child
3 B= Child (contradicting Ruth)
4 A = Child
5 Also a difficult one maybe A = Child
6 A= Child
7 A= Child - (B is signed)
8 A = Child
9 A = Child - (B has a signature; Ted Harrison)

Good Job, Dirk! You only missed ONE! I'm impressed! These aren't too difficult...
The difficult part was trying to find ones that were similar for me to compare the children with the more famous ones. This whole thing took me over 2 hours. lol
Way to go!
