Solve the Puzzle of the Missing Painting

…………….. …………..

…………………… NEW RULES, EASIER TO PLAY! ………………

Those of you already watching (or joining in) kafka’s screenplay thread might have noticed that there are some references to famous artists, paintings and literary works – there’s a reason for this (as there usually is with k!)

There are more than just some references, there are a load of them hidden in TT and Snowy’s dialogue – some of them are fairly obvious…..but some of them are fiendishly hidden in codes, anagrams and asides – all you have to do to win the competition is find as many of them as you can and name them. (If you think you have found one, try and name both the artist and the painting, or, if the answer is a book or poem, the author and the title. begin at the start of the thread and write the answers in the sequence that you find them).

Because this has been so popular we are opening it up to all of our members – That’s right even is you haven’t participated in the forum.

Just visit the thread, screenplay try to find as many paintings and artists which have been mentioned.
Then place your answers in a specially set up moderated thread that can only be seen by the group hosts – after they have been checked the winner will be announced.
