PostSubject: The Art History Mystery Challenge No. 39 Francisco Goya - Picador Caught by the Bull   Mon Aug 02, 2010 1:03 pm

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 - Spanish

Sorry about being a little late on this one. It was a long weekend so I was at the camp. Smile

It looks like it should have a bull fighter in a ring with a bull. Hmmmm.

Picador Caught by the Bull by Francisco Goya, 1793

I didn't even bother with Goya at the start because I thought that would be too obvious!

I found the pic on this site:
http://www.backtoclassics.com/gallery/franciscogoya/picador_caught_by_the_bull/

I didn't come across it in a Google search of images for Goya , but found this by searching Goya+coliseum.

I searched Goya also but couldn't find it. Then I searched his bullfighter series, but those were totally different. I knew I had seen the painting before, but just couldn't find it. Here's the Crown, or at least once Janet come back.. You earned it.

Before I looked at Goya I tried bullrings, bullfighters, coliseums.... nothing.
Even adding Goya to bullrings/bullfighters didn't turn this up! So I guess, even if I had started with Goya, I might have given up on him and moved on to other artists (all 2 of them ).

AAAHH it's good to have that medal back, Thanks Judy!

I see the medal is gone from me but isn't on you yet. Weird. Congrats on your persistence. Here's a crown for you in the mean time.

Judy
