Do You Know Your MoMA? 01/21/2011

How well do you know your MoMA? If you think you can identify the artist and title of each of these works—all currently on view throughout the Museum—please submit your answers by leaving a comment on this post. We’ll provide the answers—along with some information about each work—in two weeks (on Friday, February 4), along with the next Do You Know Your MoMA? challenge.

We had another stumper last week, with no correct guesses. This time around we’re taking it a little easier on you.
