This puzzle was a series of images that slowly gained detail to form the final images below. When teams correctly identified the art work depicted, the server would accept and modify the title for display.

The artworks (artist information included purely for edification) were:

  • Flag (Moratorium) by Jasper Johns
  • Irises by Vincent Van Gogh
  • Nighthawks by Edward Hopper
  • Guernica by Pablo Picasso
  • The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries by Jacques-Louis David
  • The Raft of the Medusa by Théodore Géricault
  • The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí
  • The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck
  • Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet
  • The Night Watch by Rembrant van Rijn
  • The Third of May 1808 by Francisco Goya
  • The Son of Man by René Magritte

The modified titles were:

  • Bad Flag (Moratorium)
  • Bad Irises
  • Bad Nighthawks
  • Bad Guernica
  • The Bad Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries
  • The Bad Raft of the Medusa
  • The Bad Persistence of Memory
  • The Bad Arnolfini Portrait
  • Bad Impression, Sunrise
  • The Bad Night Watch
  • The Bad Third of May 1808
  • The Bad Son of Man by Magritte
If you take the first letter after "BAD" in each painting title, you get the answer: FINGERPAINTS
