The Museum has also joined up with 11 other Museums and Galleries to bring you the “Surrey Arts Your Paintings Quiz.” Organised by the University of Surrey; this competition runs from 15th – 25th February. Simply download the entry form here – and either visit the Galleries or go online to find the answers. Prizes include copies of the Surrey Public Catalogue Foundation book and art packs for younger winners.

To get you started on your way – here’s a sneak peek of one of the characters in the quiz.

Mystery PaintingYour Paintings is a joint initiative between the BBC, the Public Catalogue Foundation and participating collections and museums from across the UK. Four out of five paintings held in galleries and Museums are not on show. For the last few years the PCF has been photographing thousands of these pictures and they are all displayed on the Your Paintings website.
