The Art History Mystery Challenge

Welcome to our totally disorganized art museum! The challenge is to help us identify all the masterworks in our virtual museum. We'll post a piece of the painting and one clue to get you started. Can you name the artist and the title of the painting?

Pieces of the painting and clues to the artist's identity will be added every 24 hours until we have a winner, then the next painting in our collection will be posted. Feel free to use any resources at your disposal to help in your search. Challenge winners will receive a shiny award badge that we will add below their profile image. You will retain this award until someone else wins the award.

The AHM Challenge is open to all forum members, not just ws oil painters, so join in and have some fun with us!

If you would like to host a AHM Challenge painting; please send a PM to the Challenge Moderator Callie to receive instructions and notice when to post your painting. Be prepared to check in frequently while hosting a challenge!

So far, the birth year is more hindrance than help! Rules out just about everyone.

That's not good! The year of death will probably help. But the painting that I chose seems to not show up in a lot of places. So remember the thread I offered as resources.

I'll need to put up the next piece of the puzzle and clue later tonight instead of tomorrow morning as I'm going to being going out of town for work first thing in the morning. Smile

There's something very familiar about this. But none of the artists that I think it could be fit the birth/death year. Right period, just not those years

Allright - Got it!

"Night" by Simeon Solomon

Funny how you can go through 30+ pages of Google images and not come across this or anything from the Art Renewal Center!

Saw this several times:

Will look for pic and info for Night....

Here's a good bio (with some other paintings of his):

http://www.artmagick.com/pictures/artist.aspx?artist=simeon-solomon&page=2#biography

Funny, I came across him when I first started looking. I assumed it was a portrait and started with pre-raphaelite painters because of the birth year and nationality. Then found that Solomon was born in 1840. Then gave up on Solomon because nothing matched the bit of painting shown here. After the last hint, I typed in Victorian Painter died 1905 - and there he was again - of course, still no image that matched. Thanks for hinting at the ARC site!

In all my searches, the only site that had the painting was the Art Renewal Center. Even the site I found his bio on didn't have that painting (it did have several others, including the one shown above that's similar).

....must go bookmark the ARC site

It's unusual that the ARC site doesn't come up in google searches. Congratulations Callie on finding the painting! This was a difficult one to find. I'll be posting a new one shortly. Smile
