Oh google is fine and if you just want to go with your gut that's okay too. I was just hoping people would learn something as they looked for answers....but it's okay to just have fun and take a random guess.

Question: This painting is one of many and was painted at the artists home during his later years of life while a disabling illness came over his body.

Answer: The painting is "Water Lillies" by Claude Monet the father of the impressionist movement. His water lillies paintings span over 250 as cataracts took his vision in the last half of his life. What could be more important to an artist? He found that the garden at his home provided endless inspiration because he said every minute of every day the light changed which depicted and entirely different garden.

Was it the "father of his movement" hint that put the pieces together?

Woohoo!!!!!

It was the "father of" clue that did it by the way. I was all hug up on Renoir (who suffered from rheumatoid arthritis in his hands so badly that he had to strap a paintbrush to his wrist to continue painting after 1890 or so
). I figured it would be one of the vases of flowers but couldn't find a decent way to get dates for them all.

I am somewhat reminded of this thread, "The Gruesome Dispassion of Genius".

In that, Ian takes self-sacrifice to be a sign of dispassion in the service of knowledge, but after reading about all these artists struggling through overwhelming pain to continue their work, I wonder if it's not just that genius has a hunger for expression that is stronger than the drive for self-preservation.

Yeah man passion is a powerful force. I didn't know that about Renoir....thanks for sharing that.

Yall are too good! I thought that would go on until tomorrow. I'm going to need to prepare more questions now.



QUESTION: This multi million dollar painting is split in two and nowhere to be found. This dramatic painting was painted in Amsterdam by an artist born in 1606.


Answer: Rembrandt van Rijn "The Storm on the Sea of Galilee". It was stolen in 1990 from a Boston museum along with like a dozen other paintings worth over 300 million. It is listed on the FBI's top ten art thefts web page in an attempt to recover information. The painting is split in two by the boat mast and it was split from it's frame when stolen.
