September Art Celebration

Jeremy Clarkson, of Top Gear fame, once claimed nobody could name two Russian artists. Passport readers know better of course, thanks to Olga’s erudite and entertaining articles, and more. Here are copies of four of the most famous works and artists, probably in most people’s top ten favourites. Enjoy! As this is a puzzle page, I have mixed up the artists’ and paintings’ names and dates. Nothing too hard to match up. Hint for Jeremy, if you read this: I have included a Kandinsky, so even you should score at least one.

Zinaida Serebriakova 1978 St Basil’s Cathedral
Aristarkh Lentulov 1923 Transverse Line
Vassily Polenov 1909 At the Dressing Table
Vassily Kandinsky 1913 Moscow Courtyard

Back-to-School Word Search

Can you find at least 29 school-related words, including subjects, parts of the day and opinions? Some of them are obvious, but some are less easy or obviously school words. Hint: every square is used.

How old is this puzzle?

Mr and Mrs Abacus have four children at school, Albert, Basil, Calamity and Zooloboogie, the youngest. Tell the parents how old they are! 2 are even numbers, 2 are odd; their ages add up to 48. B is twice as old as Z; A was double C when Z was one. Two of their ages are even numbers, 2 are prime numbers. C and Z together are 2 years older than A. All are whole numbers.
