What Doesn't Belong: Artists Version

Would you like to play my latest version of "What doesn't belong?"

First, can you tell me what all of these pictures have in common?

They are all paintings by Claude Monet.
And which one is different from the others and why?
All of them have a lady with a parasol but one.
Here's another one. What do all of these have in common?
All are done by John Singer Sargent.
Which one doesn't belong?
The landscape- no people in it.
These?They are all works by Edgar Degas.
And of course, one of the paintings doesn't have any ballerinas.

The game can also be played mixing up the artists (so for example, all of the paintings would be done by Monet excepting one).

If you guessed that this game is a little beyond M, you would be correct. I'll save it for later. It was interesting to discover that M had an immediate affinity for the works of Pablo Picasso- even hugged and kissed each picture (?!) Very odd!

Such a great idea :) Where did you get all of those pictures?

I found the pictures on the internet, shrunk them down to a uniform size and printed them off on glossy photo paper.

What's so odd about showing some appreciation for the greatest visual artist of the 20th century? If she were kissing Thomas Kinkade paintings, then you should be concerned.

Ha! Good point, Brian!

Wow! I would love it if you could share the files you have of the paintings! I bet it would save a lot of us from finding and shrinking them all!
