Bremen Artists
« on: October 26, 2009, 02:35:42 PM »
Some of the images displayed below are masterpieces of Abstract Art, created by great artists. The rest were painted by Bremen Artists (a dog, a cat, a pig, an elephant and an ape). Can you tell which is which?

Take this quiz to find out: Bremen Artists

I've already done this quiz a few weeks ago, and I received a perfect mark.

Really? Someone wrote this quiz  before us? You want to charge us with plagiarism? Then you should at least supply the url of the original.

It must have been a similar quiz.  I apologise for not looking into it more thoroughly.  As I recall, the similar test probably contained works that were more obviously those of Kandinsky and others, although a few of the works seem to me to be the same as the ones you use in your quiz.

Strange. I don't think you said anything you should apologize for. Strange place. Some apologize for nothing. Others, who commited vile defamations of Holy Martyr Zoya, are not even sorry.

Pravoslavbob was not apologizing for something he said, but rather, for not paying attention to something you said.

Not paying attention to what I said could have influenced me only through what he said. Would he did not pay attention and did not post anything what would be the matter?

Simkins, take a deep breath and relax.  Now read what I am about to type very slowly.
Pravoslavbob though he had done the quiz you posted and simply stated that he had and scored well. When you pointed out that it was a different quiz, he apologized for not being attentive.

This thread is a good example of how overreaction can hinder discussion, especially on the Internet. It is now locked.
