Spot The Art Reference
Pentagram partner Angus Hyland has designed this canvas tote bag for art supply shop Cass Art. So, here's a little Christmas quiz: how many of the well-known silhouetted art works can you name?
Here's two to get you started: Cadeau by Man Ray (top right) and, next to it, Man Striding by Alberto Giacometti.
David - Michealangelo
Rabbit - Jeff Koons
Venus di Milo
Van Gogh - Sunflowers
Felix The Cat
Che - Jim Fitzpatrick
Rene Magritte (?)
The Banana is bugging me I'm sure its a sculpture and not the Warhol - Velvet Underground cover (or is it a parody?)
Jeez did I really just fall for that and spend the past 15mins racking my brain and spell checking/googling my answers....(But please someone put me out my misery)
Is Felix the Cat supposed to be Mark Leckey who won the Turner Prize this year?
Well done Framedink.
Ed - yes, we thought Felix was a reference to Leckey's work.
Any ideas on the sculpture, bottom right? That's the one we're really struggling with.
The 'sculpture' at bottom right is Le Corbusier's Modular Man, which is as much a guiding principle, or way of thinking, as it is an artistic form.
Bottom right is Le Corbusiers 'Le Modular'
Mark - It's not a sculpture... it seems the modulor man by Le Corbusier
the bag itself though is shiz. who'd be seen dead with that? over branded and terrible copy, 'art in transit'? please..
There's a Jeff Koons piece in there, is there not? The rabbit?
@ma, Modular, Jan, merlo
Yep, that's Jeff Koons' Rabbit (1986)
The stag looks like 'Monarch of the Glen' by Edwin Landseer, but he doesn't really fit with the rest of the artists already mentioned.
Maybe it's Peter Saville's reworking of the 'Monarch of the Glen'
Is that a Giacometti sculpture at the top right next to the Man Ray iron and a Dan Flavin at the bottom left?
doh! just spotted that Giacometti and Ray were mentioned in the article!
There is a Giacometti sculpture as well...
light bulbs - dan flavin
I love Dan Flavin gutted I didnt make the connection!
Any one got the banana yet? Why have I got the image of a Woman on that banana like a rodeo rider, is that an album cover as well (or my freudian subconcious!)
Put me out my misery!
Is the Target supposed to represent Jasper Johns?
Yep - we think that's definitely Johns. We had Monarch of the Glen down for the stag and also a Dan Flavin piece at bottom left (going to guess at the title as, um, Untitled).
Aside from the silhouettes of "art materials", I think that leaves the banana, the heart and the flag?? Could the heart be a Tim Noble and Sue Webster?
Just Goggled "banana art". It's a whole genre of its own apparently.
