I have a quick question. Let's use the image results for WHISTLER'S MOTHER as an example.

Looking through the results, you will see the painting cropped at all sorts of coordinates. If we're Googling paintings in order to match them up with the grid, is this going to affect us at all if we select a version of the painting you didn't use when creating the graph? Or does that not matter?

Ok, I'll push this forward by saying you won't need to match things up to find the answer. Nor will you need to do math or overlay paintings.

That's is MUCH better. Thanks so much. This should be a bit easier then. lol

I'm thinking that all answers from this point forward will need to include the members logic used to make their guess. If their "work" is not shown I will ignore the post.

Because I'm allowing one answer per person per day I don't want this thing to boil down to a random guess based on the number of paintings that haven't been guesses yet.

I need everything in one place to make this easier and figured it should be public so it could help everyone else:

 


OFFICIAL HINTS:

1) .5+.5=1

2) Look past the obvious.

3) Something hidden has yet to be found.

4) You will need Photoshop (or like program) to find what is hidden.

 


KL-ISSUED SUPPLEMENTAL HINTS:

1) You won't need to match things up to find the answer.

2) You won't need to do math.

3). You won't need to overlay paintings.

2). Agapanthus --- Water Lilies

6). Rembrandt --- A vase of roses

7). Renoir --- Grande Vaso De Fiori

Luck was the only hope to my stupid.

How can you take that away from me?

Aaarrgggh!!! I think I'll join Ashley at the asylum.

I have looked through every painting over 100 times! I've zoomed in and adjusted brightness and contrast.

I've seen several hidden images in several paintings. There is one artwork that might be it but I'm probably stretching it.

I saw that but didn't get it. What is it exactly? It's just like a folded piece of paper floating by his desk.


I really thought it was the Annunciation because the tiled floor has a 9x9 tile grid just like the graph and the colors match up with the RGB code but that was a flop, too. lol

Hint added to the opening post.

Everyone who has already posted an answer can offer a second guess.
