Can you identify these 10 paintings?

 

A new TV series is set to tell the story behind ten of the greatest paintings in the world - but according to a new study, only six per cent of adults can correctly identify them. Greatest Paintings of the World with Andrew Marr, looks at some of the most famous works of art in history, including the Mona Lisa and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Ahead of the show, YouGov asked 2,000 British adults to identify paintings by artists including Mone, Botticelli, Constable and Turner. When shown these works of art, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa came out on top as the most recognisable overall, with 95 per cent of those polled able to identify the  masterpiece, whilst The Rokeby Venus by Diego Velazquez was the least well known, with only 22 per cent correctly naming the painting.
