There have been countless influential artists throughout history. From the dawn of the Renaissance to the current day, the created image has brought both joy and wonder to our lives.
To write a quiz on each of them would have been a delight, but sadly it would have taken a lifetime - and so much of the website that it would have to be renamed Artist Quizzes rather than Education Quizzes! Because of this I have had to choose just 15 painters worthy of their own quiz; a difficult task given the amount of talented artists there have been. 15 seems too small a number so, to give light to a few more, I have written this quiz which features some of the most influential artists not mentioned elsewhere.
The reader will note that some 20th century artists such as Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso have not been included. This is for purely copyright reasons rather than being an oversight. Questions about some of the more modern artists can be found in the quiz on Art Quotes.
