About This Quiz

Walking through a museum presents you with so much art that it can be hard to take it all in. You wander the halls, looking at canvas after canvas when, just over there, something catches your eye. It's a painting that you're sure you've seen a million times in your life, but whether or not you've actually encountered it, it's really speaking to you right now. You don't know what it is about this piece of art that's making you feel this way. It's just paint on canvas. By a now-famous artist. Hung on the wall. For all intents and purposes, nothing of the sort should make you feel any type of way.

That is what art can do for you, especially when that piece of art feels like it represents your life. All art is created with emotion. The painting itself doesn't even have to be an exact replica of your experiences. Maybe the colors just really bring you joy right now, or the shapes or people in the painting remind you of your friends and loved ones. It really can be transformative. Which famous painting represents your life? Take this quiz now to find out!
