Here's a nice art quiz I saw over at DarcKnyt's.

Note my score of -21 in Cubism. I really hate Cubism. Always have. However, I used to really love Impressionism in art and music, but I found myself turning away from those choices. The second-highest score I got was for Renaissance art. I like those paintings because they look weird to me, and there are usually lots of details to study.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Simple, Progressive, and Sensual

11 Ukiyo-e, 1 Islamic, 2 Impressionist, -21 Cubist, -12 Abstract and 8 Renaissance!

Ukiyo-e (浮世絵, Ukiyo-e), "pictures of the floating world", is a genre of Japaneseand paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries. it mostly featured landscapes, historic tales, theatre, and pleasure. Ukiyo is a rather impetuous urban culture that has bloomed in popularity. Although the Japanese were more strict and had many prohibitions it did not affect the rising merchant class and therefore became a floating art form that did not bind itself to the normal ideals of society.

People that chose Ukiyo-e art tend to be more simplistic yet elegant. They don't care much about new style but are comfortable in creating their own. They like the idea of living for the moment and enjoy giving and receiving pleasure. They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue. They do not mind following traditions but are not afraid to move forward to experience other ideas in life. They tend to enjoy nature and the outdoors. They do not mind being more adventurous in their sexual experiences. They enjoy being popular and like being noticed. They have their own unique style of dress and of presenting themselves. They may also tend to be more business oriented or at the very least interested in money making adventures. They might make good entrepreneurs. They are progressive and adaptable.

  1. I got an even worse score on Cubism. I think mine was -37. Ick. No one can accuse me of being a square, eh? :)

  2. I have the same taste as you. :)

    12 Ukiyo-e, -6 Islamic, 1 Impressionist, -12 Cubist, -3 Abstract and -7 Renaissance!

  3. "People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. "

    um...yeah! I'd say that's dead-on.

  4. Sounds like you. :) I thought this part was on par: They may be more agreeable than other people and do not like to argue.

    I hate Cubism too. I think I got -40 on that part. Oddly, I am pretty square. ;)

  5. Yeah, Knyt, I think that hating cubism means you ARE a square. Was Picasso a square? No, he was a cool cat. Of course, he was also a woman-hater, so I think I prefer the squares.

    I enjoyed this test. I think the description fits me pretty well, though certain aspects may not come through on here, like the business part.

  6. Apparently my quiz results say that I'm obsessed with boobs and guitars.
