Can You Guess The Artist (POLL)?

At long last we are bringing back our "Guess the Artist" feature, in which you can put your artful eye to the test by recognizing a top artist's lesser known works.

We're kicking it off with this mysterious oil painting, whose somber colors and simple strokes make the image clear but the artist somewhat difficult to decipher. While the painter clearly had a dark side judging from the palette, that hardly eliminates any of your choices, does it?


What do you think, readers? Is it Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, Post-post-Impressionist? (Take your best guess. No Googling!)

Ready? We'll post the results tomorrow on Twitter.

UPDATE: The answer to this edition of "Guess the Artist" is Vincent Van Gogh. The work above is his "Still Life with Two Sacks and a Bottle" (1884-85).
