    Organic Shapes resemble Life-like formations.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Organic shapes are irregular, flowing, and freeform in nature, often inspired by natural elements such as plants, animals, and the human body. These shapes are not rigid or geometrically precise like geometric shapes. Instead, they have a more natural and lifelike appearance. Therefore, the statement "Organic Shapes resemble life-like formations" is true as organic shapes indeed bear a resemblance to the irregular and flowing forms found in living organisms and natural environments.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Juan Gris was inspired by Picasso and Braque.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Juan Gris, a Spanish painter and sculptor, was indeed inspired by Picasso and Braque, who were prominent figures in the development of Cubism. Gris was heavily influenced by their innovative approach to art, particularly in terms of breaking down objects and forms into geometric shapes and multiple viewpoints. He not only admired their work but also collaborated with them, contributing to the evolution of Cubism as an art movement. Therefore, it is accurate to say that Gris was inspired by Picasso and Braque.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Juan Gris is known as the inventor of Cubism.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Juan Gris was not the inventor of Cubism. Cubism was actually pioneered by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in the early 20th century. However, Juan Gris was an important figure in the development of Cubism and made significant contributions to the movement. He was known for his analytical approach to art and his use of geometric shapes and fragmented forms.

    Geometric Shapes resemble Life-like formations

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because geometric shapes do not resemble life-like formations. Geometric shapes are typically abstract and mathematical in nature, whereas life-like formations are organic and complex. Geometric shapes are often used to represent and analyze mathematical concepts and structures, while life-like formations are found in nature and have irregular shapes and patterns. Therefore, geometric shapes and life-like formations are fundamentally different from each other.

    Pablo Picasso worked in many different styles before he began to deconstruct shapes for the sake of the design, thus creating a new way of painting which came to be known as Cubism.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Pablo Picasso indeed worked in various styles before he started deconstructing shapes for the purpose of design, leading to the development of Cubism. This art movement revolutionized painting by depicting objects from multiple viewpoints, breaking them down into geometric forms. Picasso's exploration of Cubism marked a significant shift in his artistic career and greatly influenced the art world. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately describes Picasso's contribution to the development of Cubism.

    When you create a collage artwork, you are de-constructing and re-constucting again and again.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When creating a collage artwork, the process typically involves deconstructing various materials or images and then reconstructing them in a new and creative way. This can involve cutting, tearing, or manipulating the materials to fit the desired composition. Therefore, the statement that when creating a collage artwork, you are deconstructing and reconstructing again and again is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    1.       When you create a collage artwork, you can use a varied set of art and found object materials.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When creating a collage artwork, it is indeed possible to use a diverse range of art and found object materials. Collage involves assembling different materials such as photographs, magazine cutouts, fabric, and other objects to create a unified composition. This allows for a lot of creativity and experimentation, as artists can combine various textures, colors, and shapes to convey their intended message or aesthetic. Therefore, the statement "When you create a collage artwork, you can use a varied set of art and found object materials" is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that a picture can be perceived as either a bunny or a duck, depending on the individual's perspective. This implies that the image is ambiguous and can be interpreted in multiple ways. It highlights the concept of visual perception and how different people may perceive the same image differently.

    The artists, Picasso, Braque and Gris all made Still Life Paintings.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because all three artists mentioned, Picasso, Braque, and Gris, are known for their contributions to the development of Cubism, a movement in art that focused on depicting objects from multiple viewpoints simultaneously. Still life paintings, which depict inanimate objects like fruits, flowers, or everyday objects, were a common subject matter for these artists. Therefore, it can be concluded that all three artists made still life paintings.

    • A.

      The paintings above are most likely done by Juan Gris, and both are done using asymmetrical balance

    • B.

      The paintings above are most likely an example of the differences in the works by George Braque and Pablo Picasso

    • C.

      The paintings above are most likely done by Juan Gris and A is an example of Radial Balance

      The paintings above are most likely done by Pablo Picasso and are both prime examples of Symmetrical Balance

    Correct Answer
    A. The paintings above are most likely done by Juan Gris, and both are done using asymmetrical balance
    Explanation
    Based on the given information, the paintings are most likely done by Juan Gris because it is stated in the question. Additionally, the paintings are described as being done using asymmetrical balance, which means that the elements in the paintings are not symmetrical or evenly distributed. This aligns with the information given in the diagrams, where the left side (A) and the right side (B) are not identical or balanced in a symmetrical way.

  • 23. 

    George Braque began to add actual found objects into his paintings which came to be known as Analytically Cubism.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    George Braque did indeed begin to incorporate actual found objects into his paintings, which is a characteristic of Analytical Cubism. Analytical Cubism was a style developed by Braque and Pablo Picasso in the early 20th century, where objects were broken down into geometric forms and multiple viewpoints were depicted simultaneously. This technique involved the use of collage, where actual objects such as newspaper clippings or pieces of fabric were attached to the canvas. Therefore, the statement "George Braque began to add actual found objects into his paintings which came to be known as Analytically Cubism" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    The painting above by Juan Gris displays  his use of radial balance, because:

    • A.

      The painting contains items which make the painting heavy on one side, while light on the other.

    • B.

      The painting contains shapes which have their edges aligned with diagonals which appear to move away from a central axis point, like spokes on a bicycle wheel.

    • C.

      The painting is asymmetrical which moves the eye around the composition again and again.

    • D.

      The painting is very symmetrical, and has no real sense of radial balance.

      The statements in A. & D. are true.

    Correct Answer
    B. The painting contains shapes which have their edges aligned with diagonals which appear to move away from a central axis point, like spokes on a bicycle wheel.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the painting contains shapes which have their edges aligned with diagonals which appear to move away from a central axis point, like spokes on a bicycle wheel. This suggests the use of radial balance, as it creates a sense of movement and balance radiating from a central point.

    The correct answer is stating that while statements B, C, and D may be true for collage artworks, statement A is only true for some collage artworks. This means that not all collage artworks need to be 3-D objects.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Most web page designers use Symmetrical Balance as opposed to Asymmetrical Balance to create an opposition for the computer user.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Most web page designers actually use Asymmetrical Balance, not Symmetrical Balance, to create a more dynamic and visually interesting layout for the computer user. Asymmetrical Balance involves arranging elements on a page in an unbalanced manner, using different sizes, colors, and positions to create a sense of movement and tension. This helps to capture the user's attention and create a visually appealing design. Symmetrical Balance, on the other hand, involves arranging elements in a balanced and mirrored manner, which can create a more static and predictable layout. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
