Modern Art or Toddler Art?

Reply Wed 14 Sep, 2016 09:13 pm
I just took a quiz "modern art or toddler art?" It was fun but it had me wondering. How do you tell? For example, one of these two paintings is done by a very famous artist and the other by a toddler. If there is no attribution whatsoever, can you be absolutely confident which is which? What are some of the revealing characteristics about these two?

I took this quiz https://www.buzzfeed.com/jenlewis/quiz-can-you-tell-the-difference-between-modern-art-and-art?utm_term=.jhPonNo8R#.xeZpXEpqd

and got 10 out of 11 right.

Funny thing, the one I got wrong was the first picture on this thread.

That's impressive! What were your criteria? Do you have art background?

No art background.

Don't really like modern art.

Looked at them with the thought "would a toddler be able make strokes or shapes like that?"

Don't know anything about kids either BTW.

But, if it didn't look like a 3 year old or younger could physically do it, then it had to be an adult.

Don't be impressed, it wasn't hard.
