    Take the quiz and find out your art moment.

    http://curstcait.netdrain.com/quizzes/artquiz.html

    You should know something about this, it's the Renaissance! As for style, "...artists studied the natural world, perfecting their understanding of such subjects as anatomy and perspective." (artcyclopedia.com.) They loved science-y things and labored for perfection and harmonious beauty, a goal with which you sympathize. You're probably pretty smart, too. Anal-retentive much?
    Famous Renaissancers (lots!): Michaelangelo, Da Vinci, Raphael, and You.

    The medical interest is very appropriate.

    interesting...

    "Baroque Art emerged in Europe around 1600 as an reaction against the intricate and formulaic Mannerist style which dominated the Late Renaissance." (artcyclopedia.com.)

    Baroque Art is fairly realistic but is often willing to smudge the realism in favor of theatricality and the emotional pull that is its trademark. You're most likely a creative, talented emotional person who likes attention. Although it could all just be a show.

    Famous Baroquers (there are lots): Rembrandt, Rubens, Caravaggio, and You.

    I am a surrealist

    Surrealism is style from the early to mid 20th century "in which fantastic visual imagery from the subconscious mind is used with no intention of making the artwork logically comprehensible." (artcyclopedia.com.) It was kinda like the Symbolist movement, but weirder and more obsessed with sex. It took a lot from Freud and Jung, after all. You are a person who cheats on quizzes. Or you're just really weird.
    Famous Surrealists: Dali, Magritte, Miro, and You.

    I'm not gonna take the test but I have always liked surrealism, such as Dali, despite it freaking me out sometimes :)

    Renaissance. The test seems a bit skewed, oh well.
