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.

You got it. Your turn.

Artist and title.
Why didn't you start with something hard, Glenn?
Problem with text is I can't tell if you are being:

1. tongue in cheek -- in which case, I reply I didn't have much time to find something
2. exasperated -- in which case, I reply I did pick one of the artist's most important works

;-) or maybe ;-(
Being sarcastic. If it wasn't hard, I would have guessed it, I'm sure. Honestly, I have no idea. Not even the artist, though I'm going to say it was probably done 1920 - 1940s.
Just a tad earlier (actually finished in the early 20s)
Seems very influenced by Bauhaus.
This piece seemed ready made for the challenge.
Marcel Duchamp -- don't know title though.
You're halfway there.
You're halfway there.

Half full, half empty? ;-)

La Mariée Mise à Nu Par Ses Célibataires, Même aka Le Grand Verre (The Large Glass)

(actually finished in the early 20s)

Actually never finished. Duchamp grew bored of it.
Your turn, Jaume.

("The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even")
