I like to think that the moment of creation is an intimate experience where the artist pours some of him- or herself into their work. So in a sense the art we create is a window to our soul. If this is true the question is: can we gain some insight into the type of person someone was, is or will be just from looking at a sampling of their art? To answer this question today we shall focus on painting, which is one of the most easily viewed forms of art.
I have made a collage of the work of six painters, but here is the rub: three of them were either murderers or assisted people in killing themselves. If indeed the art we create is a window to our soul, what can we tell about the artist from his or her art? Can you, just from looking at these paintings, figure out who the killers are? Give it a try. The link at the end will take you to the answers.
