Can You Name the Women Who Created These Iconic Works of Art?

Many people can’t name five female artists, and we want to change that. Each year, we participate in the National Museum of Women in the Arts’ #5WomenArtists campaign to raise awareness of historic female masters, and to bring prominence to burgeoning masterful women artists today (many of whom have art on iCanvas).

Last year, we created an infographic on historic women artists and this quiz to see how well you could pair famous works of art to their creators and here’s how you did:

  • 23% answered eight to 10 questions correctly (out of 10 questions)
  • 52% answered five to seven questions correctly
  • 24% answered two to four questions correctly
  • 1% answered only one question correctly

Think you know your female artists? Take the quiz below, updated with new historic artists and artworks, and see how you do. Can you beat last year’s takers? When you’re done, learn about some of the fantastic female masters on iCanvas and challenge your friends to see if they can name #5WomenArtists! 


  1. These women were so talented as our many women who are artists today.
    They create paintings, quilts, pottery, photography and jewelry. Best of all women are
    the givers of life and create babies with all the love in their hearts!

  2. I was happy that I knew as many as I did-honestly the last few were not familiar to me-more reading on the topic-and viewing- thanks whoever got me on this list—Maryalice
