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!



Clue = Nationality - English

Feels good to have that medal back! I've missed it
I came across this site during my search and bookmarked it to look at later:

http://marineoilpaintings.blogspot.com/search/label/Brett

I almost dismissed Brett because the paintings on the above site didn't seem like the style of our mystery painting. The death year made me take another look for Brett works.

The second one on the site you provided looks very unusual. Really barren.
