About This Quiz

Want to impress us with your knowledge of art? This is the quiz for you. We're going to test your knowledge of classic French paintings by showing you some of these masters' most famous works. Think you know your Monet? What about your Manet? Got a clue about Cézanne? Well, what about Gauguin?

Throughout history, French writers, filmmakers and designers have had a strong influence on Western culture, and their artists have been no less influential. French artists played a major role in the popularization of the Neoclassical, Gothic, Surrealist, Fauvist and, of course, Impressionist art movements. 

We're going to show you works from all of these periods of art, and you're going to show us that you're an art expert (or, um, not?) If you're familiar with great paintings such as A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, Luncheon of the Boating Party, Oath of Horatii or The Dance, this quiz will be a snap for you. If you're not, well, you still get to look at a lot of beautiful paintings, so this win-win scenario! Come on, it's time to show off your smarts!
