After part 1, part 2, and a short break a time has come for the, for now, final part of Iconic Painters. Same rules apply: three icons per painter, an answer in white to highlight underneath each poster.

This part contains some of our personal favorites (but so did the previous ones) and some we would probably find really hard to guess. Enjoy!

Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669)

Jasper Johns (born 1930)

Damien Hirst (born 1965)

Henri Matisse (1869–1954)

Edgar Degas (1834–1917)

Marc Chagall (1887–1985)

Gustave Courbet (1819–1877)

Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

If you enjoyed it, drop by again because the Iconic Posters project will be continued – some time in the future.

The posters are available in our Society6 store, both as prints and other products.

Thanks everyone for visiting part one of Iconic Painters posters and for all the warm words. Today the promised second part and, for newcomers, a word of explanation again: each poster presents one famous painter through three icons and the answer is written in white underneath (visible when highlighted).

Perhaps this set is more difficult to guess but it’s rather hard for us to assess, so you be the judge(s). Part three to come soon.

Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)

Mark Rothko (1903–1970)

Paul Cézanne (1839–1906)

Salvador Dalí (1904–1989)

Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986)

Georges de La Tour (1593–1652)

Roy Lichtenstein (1923–1997)

Claude Monet (1840–1926)

Part three is here. And in case you missed it, here’s Iconic TV Shows.

The posters are available in our Society6 store, both as prints and other products.

Our Iconic TV series (which we’d like to thank everyone for visiting/commenting on etc.) left us with a feeling that we still have more to do with this idea and today we present what we actually did. Instead of TV series this time we coded a famous painter through three icons. We realize this might not be so exciting for people who are not into art history but for us this was challenging in a good way and satisfying.

The posters come in three installments, first one this week.

Highlight white text under each poster to read the answer.

Andy Warhol (1928–1987)

Johan Vermeer (1632–1675)

Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890)

Jacques-Louis David (1748–1825)

Piet Mondrian (1872–1944)

Frida Kahlo (1907–1954)

René Magritte (1898–1967)

Jackson Pollock (1912–1956)

And here is part two and part three.
