Musea Art Contest 6/29/09

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

Matisse and Picasso were both rivals and great friends. They were also arguably the best artists of the century. Each influenced the other more than the other would admit. Let’s go back in time. Picasso just unveiled his new picture, the groundbreaking masterpiece that would change the world of art forever, “Les Demoiselles, d’Avignon”. What was Matisse’s reaction when he first saw the work?


(After seeing the work) “Matisse and Leo Stein burst out laughing and mocked Picasso’s incoherent attempts to explain his intentions.” (from a letter to Kahnweiler of June 1912. Interpreting Matisse Picasso, by Cowling). Ouch!

We had no winner, Seems y’all’s brains were in a cubist condition!

I don’t dumb down, so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT” or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my NOW RELEASED cd CALLED ‘FOUR-TH’ (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to e-mail me at THIS NEW ADDRESS: with the correct answer to this art question*

With all those summer blockbusters, we have this question. What’s the name of a device that lets a person drive a puppet from a distance? For extra credit what’s it named after?

Good luck! Readers,
