* Architects? The only famous one is Le Corbusier. Creator/MichelangeloBunoarotti too, but he is better known as a painter and sculptor. In the USA Frank Lloyd Wright is well known. Other honorable name drops are usually Alvar Aalto, Leon Battista Alberti, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Antoni Gaudi, Walter Gropius, Victor Horta, Philip Johnson, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Eero and Eliel Saarinen, but then you would already know something about architecture. The general public will also know the name of Albert Speer, but more because of his association with Nazi Germany and being a close confident of UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler.

* Art Nouveau = Alphonse Mucha. His paintings have been reproduced on everything. Mostly only his posters and figurative paintings are shown, and the rest of his work is ignored.

To most people the word "art" will automatically be interpreted as "paintings" and "sculptures". Most people will think of figurative art as actual art and see modern art as bacially [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible a lot of garbage or primitive, ugly stuff that anyone can do]].

* If a famous painter is mentioned, expect one of these to be name dropped: Creator/LeonardoDaVinci, Creator/MichelangeloBuonarroti (who is known by his first name only), Creator/RembrandtVanRijn, Creator/PeterPaulRubens, Creator/VincentVanGogh (whose surname is ''always'' mispronounced), Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri De Toulouse Lautrec, Creator/PabloPicasso, Creator/SalvadorDali, Creator/AndyWarhol. Picasso is probably the most (mis/ab)used because of his recognizable style and strong association with cubism, which is still perceived as somewhat snobbish and a prime example of TrueArtIsIncomprehensible.

** [[HypocrisyNod It is a truth universally acknowledged]] that every shrink, ever, has a Van Gogh reproduction in their office. Most commonly, people expect ''Sunflowers'' or ''The Scream'', forgetting that the latter is NOT Van Gogh (it was done by Edvard Munch).

* Edvard Munch's ''The Scream''. It is ''the'' image of European expressionism and a trope image of TheScream. The distorted face and twisted lines are effectively creepy. The film franchise ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' did not reference the painting by its name only. The mask of the killer and the face is recognizable. * James Whistler's ''Whistler's Mother'', which is actually called ''Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1''. It pops up as one of the most typical American painting.
