Impressionism or Expressionism?
Impressionism is associated with an instant impression, light, colored shadows, separate brushstrokes, and France. Expressionism implies the artist's experiences, broken gestures, defiantly bright or dirty-dark colors, and the associations take us to Germany and Austria. But is it really simple to identify a particular painting? Are you sure that you will not confuse Monet and Schiele?

Kid`s drawing or a museum masterpiece?
“Му five-year-old nephew/grandchild/neighbor`s son could do that,” a comment like that would have been a chart topper of reaction to art works that do not fit in with the conservative art views. Well, can you unmistakably identify which picture had already taken its rightful place at a museum and which one still is kept in a home folder among other treasures? Child’s drawings for the experiment were provided by the Arthive team members.

Whose wife?
They were the first admired spectators, the first hard critics and favourite models of the artists. They did not understand them and supported them, they calmed them down and were angry with them, they reconciled with their poverty and enjoyed their glory with their husbands. They all have one similar feature: they have always been painted for love. Can you guess where is the wife of Rubens, Cezanne or Monet?

Who painted the portrait, or Whose child is this?
A real painter is always looking for a suitable sitter. It is much easier if an artist is a parent, as the suitable models run nearby. Moreover, they are constantly running... But if only they ran! They strive to unscrew something or to break it off! Therefore, the artist says to his child who acts as a model: "Sit quietly for at least half an hour!" And he clutches at paints, pencils, pastels, and starts drawing... Let`s see if you can identify the right pair: portraitist - his child?

Painter or Paintress?
For a long time, women were only painted by male painters. Ladies could not study at an art academy or paint nudity. "Women's" genres were just still life and landscape. The situation persisted until the middle of the XIX century, when painters and paintresses equaled at least in the choice of their subjects. A seductive, playful, but now also strong, confident woman has become different on both sides of the canvas. Turn on your intuition and guess who painted these female images - a painter or a paintress.
