True or Fake?

I am bailing on you guys today to take care of some new contract negotiations. So your trip here was not entirely wasted, you might visit Mikhail Simkin's True Art, or a Fake?*, a quiz to test your knowledge of authentic abstract art.

I scored 92%, but then I'm a student as well as a fan of abstract art, and recognized all but one of the real artworks. Just the Klee threw me for a loop.

  1. I got 75%, which I think is pretty good considering how long it's been since I studied.

    I got a 92% too and not because I really recognized most of the pieces except for the Rothko and the Mondrian (I thought the Klee was a Miro), but because the fakes were so monstrously ugly.

    A better quiz was the one that Stephen Colbert gave to Steve Martin. That was truly fiendish.
