detailed view of images making up Chairman Mao by Cameron Gray

One Image from Many: Cameron Gray's Chairman Mao

We take a look at Cameron Gray's "Chairman Mao," with the obvious influence of Andy Warhol's painting of the same subject, but also influenced by Chuck Close, via the use of a grid with different colored sections. But let's take it one step further than Chuck Close, because Gray makes up the overall image with easily-identifiable individual images that tend to disappear the farther back you go from the art work.

Surreal Portrait Face Find

Here we have "Surreal Portrait," 1938, by the surrealist artist Benjamin F. Berlin. The title references a singular "portrait," but we see a lot of other faces in there. Print out the painting and circle all of the faces you can find. We don't have an official answer as to the total, but we see at least ten. Can you find more than that?
