Do You Know Your MoMA? 10/22/2010

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 in the Museum’s fourth floor Painting & Sculpture galleries—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, November 5), along with the next Do You Know Your MoMA? challenge.
