Do You Know Your MoMA? 11/19/2010

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 Building Collections: Recent Acquisitions of Architecture exhibition—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, December 3), along with the next Do You Know Your MoMA? challenge.


No one was able to identify even a single artist or work from the November 5 challenge, making it our toughest one yet. There are the works that gave you all so much trouble:

1. Vasily Kandinski. Picture with an Archer</a>. 1909</p>

2. Yves Tanguy. He Did What He Wanted</a>. 1929</p>

3. El Lissitzky. Composition</a>. 1922</p>

4. Max Beckmann. The Prodigal Son Among Swine (Der Verlorene Sohn unter den Schweinen)</a>. c. 1918</p>

5. László Moholy-Nagy. Q 1 Suprematistic</a>. 1923</p>

6. Claude Monet. Agapanthus</a>. 1914–26</p>
