Guess the Artists (contest)

I’ve been asked quite frequently about the artists that Elephant Gerald is aping on the homepage.  The image comes from a benefit poster I made for the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art a few years back.

The folks at the Carle and I thought it would be fun to have a little contest to see who can guess all of the artists represented. 

Head on over to the Carle Blog to find out the rules and enter.  They will be taking entries until Noon on Friday January 11th, 2013.

You can submit your guesses according to the numbers indicated in the image below:

Three hints:  

One artist is represented twice.  
One of the works represents a genre, rather than a specific artist. (that's #12)
All of the art is from the 20th century.

On Friday, January 11th at 2pm I'll post the answers and the Carle blog will announce the winner.

Have fun and good luck!
By the way, you can purchase the poster of the image, which will benefit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. 

One lucky winner of the Guess the Artists Contest over at the Carle Museum Blog will win a personalized poster.
