There’s a lot of pleasure to be found by closely looking at art. You can discover small details in paintings, added by the artist to show personality or symbolism.
In this blog, we give you even more reason to look closely at art from across Europe. We’ve made 8 Spot the Difference puzzles from artworks and paintings – see if you can spot 8 differences in each painting.
We suggest right-clicking to see the image larger in another tab and, if you need some help, you’ll find the results by clicking the link under each puzzle.
