OK, you all are getting too good, so I have to take it up a notch. In this bonus round you have to answer 3 questions:

1) Who is this person?
2) What specific work is he most remembered for?
3) Name of the photographer who took this picture?

How you like them 'taters?

  2. Ray,
    To win, you must correctly answer three questions. There is only one answer. I will not comment on the correctness of your one answer, you must answer all three.

  5. Ray,
    To win you must have three correct answers. Thus, your response is not a winner.

    Anon,
    You do not have three correct responses.

    The game goes on!

  11. We Have a Winner!!!!

    Rob from Amersfoot brings home the win.

    Yes, it is the famous skulptor Fracois Auguste Rene Rodin, which Ray in the UK got right off. Then, he is most remembered for the "Thinker" statue. I would have also accepted the "Kiss", or even the "Gates of Hell", which were his three most remembered pieces. Now for the hard one . . . yes the photographer was Kasebier

  12. You have shown us several Kasebier pictures the last couple of days. Nate Maas should have known this!

    BTW: it's Amersfoorrrrrrrrrrt
    (from ford, a place in the river where you can cross).

  13. Good work, Rob.
    I must learn to read
    the full question
    before jumping in.

  14. Rob,
    In order to reduce the chance of an error, we will henceforth refer to you as "Rob from A."

    Nice work. I found it odd that Nate knew so much about Kasebier . . . she is not a hugely remembered photographer these days.

  15. I am so behind the curve...how are they figuring out the photographer??? I can hardly keep up with figuring out the subject! Of course, getting a decent night's sleep so I have a fighting chance might help! Thank goodness I enjoy the game. Daddy says that if you enjoy the game, you win!

  16. Way to go, Rob from Amersfoorrrrrrrrrrt! We river-named people need to stick together. Since the boys are on holiday, we went to the snow, but I drove to town to get donuts for them. While here, checked in to see the fun I missed. PJM knows how to use his nemesis powers by posting not one, but two I would have gotten by sight! Sigh.

    Re historic photography, I have many artists in my family. I like it, but have no talent, so studying art history is fun for me. Photography is a particular interest of mine. Although I'm familiar with Kasebier's work, I find some of it a little too artsy for my taste.

    Happy Easter everyone!

  17. I showed up way too late for the third week in a row but it would not have mattered. Good grief people. Photographers???? I wave my white flag and go back to the corner of the internet.

  18. I always come in too late to even participate, but I still get a kick out of the game.

    I love that photograph, though. It seems to say so much about creativity. And I've always admired his art.

  19. You know Rodin's mother was named Marie.

  20. Marie,
    Now that is funny.

  22. Let's not forget how Rodin ripped off Camille Claudel. And he really did rip her off.
