Only two good ones on this this year's Humanities final.
When asked to identify what period of art this piece is:
one student responded "Salvador Dada."
(It is a dada piece by Duchamp, but somehow Dali got into the mix.)
And when asked for the title of this painting:
another student said, "The Harlots of Europe."
Okay, he's not too far off on that one ("Les Demoiselles d'Avignon"), but I think it's a fine example of how everything is more elegant in French.
Duchamp knew how to fool the public! Lay a urinal on the floor and call it art!
