StarryStarryNight Photo Most people who go to Amsterdam visit Anne Frank's home, walk through the Red Light District and plan to spend a day at the Rijksmuseum with van der Mersch and Rembrandt van Rijn. So did we but we saw the Van Gogh Museum next door and decided to pop in. Eight very enjoyable hours later... We did see "Night Watch" and a few of the most well known artistic Dutch achievements at the Rijksmuseum but the impressions made by van Gogh remain.

This quiz asks you to document your knowledge about this artist. In our travels, we have seen one of the greatest tributes to an artist in France where one can navigate the town of Arles, France and see a brass plaque with his painting inscribed, placed where he stood when he captured the scene. The menu of the restaurant where he and his roommate often ate, has his painting in yellow, on their printed menu. Yes, they found a way to separate $20 dollars from me to be able to keep the menu.

Van Gogh is also captured in song and film. So ... without any effort, one can learn almost everything you need to know to be a van Gogh affection-ado. These questions help you to recognize how famous the man is because you will probably know the answers.

Wonderful quiz, some challenging ones as well. I know of course that Van Gogh lost an ear but I thought that after the argument with Gaughin that Gaughin left and went back to Paris.

Sadly my only association with art is paint-by-numbers. Nicely
