Guess the Famous Painting and feed the poor!

Daumier, Honore, The Painter at His Easel, c. 1870-75, Oil on panel, 33.5 x 27 cm, Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Wiliamstown

Thanks to Susan Benford creator of the fine art Masterpiece Cards set (see a link to her website in My Blog List), I followed the link to this great art game on the "Free Education and Free Rice" site. Click on the post title above to play the game. Here is what they say about their site:

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

FreeRice has two goals:

* Provide education to everyone for free.
* Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free. This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself. Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.

For those of you who love art history, this is a fabulous place to review your knowledge about fine art - it is so fun (and addictive) PLUS you are helping someone in the world and every little bit we can do to make the world a better place matters! See how you do!
