Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

If you pic Picasso, you're an asso.

I bet most people picked Picasso because they've heard of him.

Oh, come on. Dali is just as damned ubiquitous so go right ahead and uncurl that lip. Both artists appeal equally to the "I just took Art History 101 and now I'm gonna teach you about art, you ignorant philistines" demographic. They're both iconic for very good reasons, so there's no need to sneer at either preference.

I disagree. Even if you haven't taken Art History 101, you've still heard the name Picasso - I learned about him in the 3rd grade. You don't find the name Dali until you start to look for it (intentionally or otherwise).

Picasso is part of the 3rd grade curriculum here as well, but I think that's just because it's a lot easier for a 9 year old to imitate a Picasso than a Dali! Oddly enough, today I am wearing the Picasso pendant my 9 year old made this year.
