    I got 6 out of 11 correct. And I am a lover of modern art. I think one of the problems here was that they only presented swatches of some of the artwork. If you take a piece of something, instead of the whole, you can miss a lot of context.

    I got 7 out of 11. I got that many right, because I figured the ones that looked like toddler art, were more than likely modern art. Shit makes me want to be an artist though, because surely I can do stuff like that.

    10 out of 11. I was sure the third one was modern art, it looked too complex to be accidental.

    I was actually looking for technique, and thought, and color patterns, and composition. I suck!

    The "modern art" one that looked like a kid drew a tee pee, then went back and said ..nope nope nope, and scribbled,all over it. Yeah...I said toddler art. WRONG.

    ^ I thought it was way too exact in terms of lines and consistency to be toddler art.

    i got 9/11 and i agree about this quiz lacking context.
    and i get that this quiz is supposed to be a joke, but that tired trope of looking at an abstract painting and declaring ''I could do that" or "a toddler could do that" is just that, a tired trope. most abstract painters could draw the shit out of anything and make a figurative, decorative painting that would appeal to people who think of art as what they want hanging above their sofas in colours that match their decor. they choose not to.

    Yeah...i I was putting thought into these...and I sucked. I went back and still think at first glance it's a scribble, but closer inspection reveals placement.
