A Sudden Art Quiz

This one's probably not very familiar, but if you know the work in question, you're ruled out.

For anyone seeing this the first time: guess the year, location and - if possible - the artist. The one who gets closest gets... The undying adulation of all? Well, at least the warm, fuzzy feeling you get from being right.



When this one is sorted I can try to find another one, but if anyone has links to some not-so-very famous paintings, then feel free to continue the quiz.

P.S. No cheating.

Should I add another by the same artist, to ease things up a bit?

Why make it easier? Then the warm fuzzy feeling wont be that great


Year: near 1813-1814
Location: France

Weelll... Surprisingly enough, that's correct. But can you guess the year? (And you didn't just go check the link, did you?)

Ok, I totally cheated on the Finland guess. I gained information about where the image is located on the web from the image's properties, and it brought me here. I hope you don't consider the use of image properties "cheating". I hope you consider it "creative problem-solving" or "research".

Honestly, I don't know who this artist is. My first guess is that he/she is a Dutch painter from around the 17th century, or was influenced by the Dutch Masters.

If I were to get creative in my guessing, I'd say it might also be Munch or one of his contemporaries from the 19th century. But I really don't think so, considering the style of clothing the subject is wearing.

If I'm way off, I guess I need a hint. Is this a well-known painter? Is this someone I would have encountered in my art history lessons in school?

I don't think it's very old. It doesn't really have much depth and the paint surface hasn't discolored with age. I'm going to say after 1930s... not sure of the exact era though. I think it's a 'copy' of the old german style.
