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 - French

Had to start the puzzle pieces from the bottom on this one as his signature was in the top right of the painting. Good luck everyone! Smile

So if I could just erase that top corner....
Could the artist's name begin with B? No - you wouldn't make it that easy!

Callie, it's not Bouguereau but this artists paintings do remind me of Bouguereau for a good reason. Wink We might get Bouguereau at some point because I'm just selecting the artists with a random numbering system. Smile

Good going Callie! cheers He was a student of Bouguereau and that's why his paintings look so similar to a Bouguereau painting.
