Arrow Name that Portrait! November 2005

Can you identify the artist of the painting below?

You don't have to know art history to play. If you can use a search engine to track clues, you can do well at this game (that's how I play!).

If you name the artist, you will have the honor of posting the next mystery portrait. If you are sure of your answer, feel free to post the next painting right away.

BUT - please rename your image. Players will right click on the image to find what you have named it, so don't give any clues away.

Good luck!

Here is one you might recognize:

Looks like Degas but I don't recognize it.

This was done by a close friend and associate of Degas. They were both printmakers as well.

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

Hey I didn't even notice that signature! I will have to start paying more attention to that, it gives a great clue. You're absolutely right, haden, it's Mary Cassatt's Lydia in a Loge, Wearing a pearl necklace.

Your turn!

Re: Name that Portrait! November 2005

I dont know who painted this, but it looks like it could be a portrait of Aubrey Beardsley. He usually did his work in pen and ink, but maybe he also painted and did a self portrait?

Terry, that does look like him, with the long nose, the long face. I couldn't find the painting anywhere though.

Wow, that's a Picasso? I never would have guessed.

April, your turn!

Well, I think April is MIA so I'll have a go! This is a self portrait, not too difficult.

Cool, Dana! This is a Francis Bacon self portrait. I love his stuff.
