It's World Philosophy Day, so last night I smashed together bits from 15 paintings of philosophers. Some are easy to identify; others less so. Obviously, your job is to work out who they are.
Ok, it's been up all day. So answers are as follows:
- Descartes's face from Frans Hals - Portret van René Descartes
- Plato's hand from Raphael - The School of Athens
- Aristotle's hand from Raphael - The School of Athens
- Socrates body, and the body and hand of a young man from Jacques Louis David | The Death of Socrates
- Spinoza's hiding face from this painting by an anonymous artist, I think?
- Elizabeth of the Palatinate's face from Gerard van Honthorst - Portrait of Elizabeth of Bohemia
- Hume's hat from Allan Ramsay - Portrait of David Hume
- Bertrand Russell's pipe from this photo of Bertrand Russell
- Leibniz from Christoph Bernhard Francke - Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz
- Berkeley's frilly neck-tie thing from John Smibert - Bishop George Berkeley
- Locke from Godfrey Kneller - Portrait of John Locke
- Nietzsche's mo from F. Hartmann's photo
- Deotyma of Mantinea's body from Józef Simmler's painting in which Jadwiga Łuszczewska poses as Deotyma
- Schopenhauer's face from Jules Lunteschutz's portrait
- A dog that knew Diogenes from Edwin Landseer's Alexander and Diogenes (note that Diogenes was a Cynic, and Cynicism derives from an ancient Greek meaning "dog like".) Tricky one! But philosophers should have got it.
