25 May

Joachim Wtewael (1566-1638), “Judith and the Head Holofernes,” 1595-1600, Oil on canvas, 43 x 31 in, Princeton University Art Museum, Princeton, New Jersey, USA

 

Ding, ding, ding.   I spied it immediately — which means this endeavor IS paying off.

Pompous Perspective for $5000 dollars.  The answer:  The artistic style characterized by elegant figures in wilfully distorted poses.     The question:  What is Mannerism?

Pompous Perspective for $10,000 dollars.  The answer:  Put a finger in the eye.     The question:  How can you make sure a severed head is really dead?

Pompous Perspective for $15,000 dollars.  The answer:  Use this color scheme to make sure everyone looks dead.     The question:  What are acidic colors?

Pompous Perspective for $20,000 dollars.  The answer:  When the abdomen is distended in late pregnancy so that the belly button pops out.     The question:  What is “an outie”?

Pompous Perspective for $25,000 dollars.  The answer:  Because she needs to save her slutty reputation.     The question:  Why would a pregnant woman seduce and decapitate an invading general?

Pompous Perspective for $50,000 dollars. The answer:  I have no f*&king idea.     The question: How do you pronounce “Wtewael”?

For a more scholarly discussion, check out Princeton University Art Museum.  They usually edit the swearing.
