Bouquets to Art 2013: Answers to the Riddle


As I promised here are answers to the riddle I posed in my previous post:

Bouquet 4 proved to be an easy guess: everybody got it correct: Gottfried Helnwein, Ephiphany II

2012 2013
Gottfried Helnwein, Epiphany II - painting & flower arrangement Epiphany II, Gottfried Helnwein 2013


With the second bouquet it proved to be harder: only one reader recognized the bouquet correctly (and I was very impressed!) – Bouquet 2: Willard Leroy Metcalf Winter’s Festival

2012 2013

hajusuuri, you’re a winner! I’ll contact you to arrange a prize (I planned to make a prize for this riddle from the beginning but didn’t want my readers to feel like I’m making them to jump through hoops to get something – I wanted them to play with me).

Here are pairings for the other two bouquets:

2012 2013
Recreation, Jerome Thompson
Recreation, Jerome Thompson 2012 Recreation, Jerome Thompson 2013
A Dinner Table At Night, Sargent
A Dinner Table At Night, Sargent 2012 A Dinner Table At Night, Sargent 2013

  1. Great job, Hajusuuri!

    Undina, it’s really striking how beautifully bouquet #2 matches up with Winter’s Festival, now that I see them together. Thanks for the fun.


    • Suzanne, thank you for playing!

      Last year that Winter Festival composition was my favorite because they used all those not white flowers to represent the not white painting that, in our mind’s eye, is supposed to be white. The composition this year did it very interesting as well (and they used lilacs!)


What's on your mind? (I encourage posting relating links to your posts)
