    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?

    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.

    That fourth toddler piece is kinda nice, actually.

    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.

    same here, but some of these are really beautiful. The Woods pic is among my favourites, too =)

    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.

    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 :D

    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. :D

    Yeup. They selected bits specifically to mislead.

    modern art's been done. these toddler's works are derivative. they need to move with the times
