Modern Art vs Toddler Art

I am not sure if we have done this before, apologies if we have.

A small quiz here - see how you go.

I only got 5 out of 11. I am sure that you can score higher. I think that it would have been more honest to show the entire picture each time (that said - there were some that were only cropped a little).

Also, which of the 11 artworks do you like best?

I got 5 out of 11, too. My favorite is #10, with all the fine lines.

Re: Modern Art vs Toddler Art

10 out of 11 right.

Test is seriously flawed in that it only shows a small portion of the pictures. You can see the whole painting only after you've voted.

8 of 11 for me. Some toddler pics are absolutely awesome! =) Quite a few I'd hang up in my living room.

7 out of 11. My favorite was the one called Woods, not by a toddler I believe. In general I do not like modern art, I prefer realism.

6/11. But then I'm not that much of an art expert.

I got 7/11. I thought I would do better considering I have a toddler producing art like this. We even have some of her stuff framed and hanging on our walls.

Re: Modern Art vs Toddler Art

ok, I think I can speak for everyone when I say: we want to see pictures of your toddler's pictures!! =)
Pleeeeeeeeze!!!

Quite a lot of my colleagues have toddler paintings in their offices. I have one of myself in my lab coat, painted by my boss' oldest daughter some 20 years ago. Far better than any Dali, if you ask me! I earned that treasure by entertaining her with a microscope and a few drops of puddle-water

Re: Modern Art vs Toddler Art

I got 7 out of 11, I actually saw a pattern emerge after the first 4 (which I answered consistently wrong btw) and when you see it, it's not hard to tell the difference.

I love what these toddlers made though! In many cases I like the toddler art better than the modern art.
