An Ice Bucket Challenge in which Connoisseurship Remains Dry


We hadn’t noticed how rich the iconography of the ice bucket challenge is until recently; strange how the motif has gone undetected. artcritical.com will donate ten bucks each to the ALS campaign for the first ten bona fide old master images posted in the comments section here — we are the final judges as to their “authenticity.” (You can’t just stick an ice bucket under the table of the Supper at Emmaus and hope for the best, in other words.) If you post to our Facebook page and like the page while you are there we’ll double your donation.

Apologies to Moses Breaking the Tablets of the Law (1659) Oil on canvas by Rembrandt Gemaldegalerie Berlin

Rules, as implied above: an authentic collage posted as a jpeg showing an ice bucket challenge performed in an old master painting. Please make the jpeg 72 dpi, 550 pixels wide or 500 high, whichever is greater. The donation will be made to the ALS Association of Greater New York. Donation doubled if you also post to (and please like, if you haven’t done so already, once there) our Facebook page. And follow us on Instagram.
