Question # 10, Date : 10-Oct-2019
This post is a part of Project IR Butler 2019-20. Click here for Details


Marketing Executive
An American museum of East Asian art reviewed its acquisitions strategy in 2009. As part of that review, a marketing executive recommended purchasing more ceramics, jades, and paintings of people or landscapes because visitor surveys indicated that those types are of greatest interest to museumgoers in the region.


Museum’s curator
The museum’s curator recommended purchasing more twenty-first-century East Asian art—particularly abstract (nonrepresentational) paintings and sculptures—because the museum’s collection is weakest in that area.


Among the East Asian works of art described below, select a painting and a sculpture, each of which satisfies at least one of the recommendations made by the marketing executive and at least one of the recommendations made by the curator. Make only two selections, one in each column.

A. Painting of girl’s face, in shades of blue and red, acrylic and oil on canvas, 2006

B. Chinese brush painting of fish in a tank, ink on paper, 2002

C. Fish-shaped vase with dragon head, jade, 1849

D. Abstract sequence of interconnected curves, ceramic, 2008

E. Fossil-like, jagged sculpture suspended from cables, stainless steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and cable, 2004

Spoiler: :: OA
Painting A
Sculpture D

I was confused about this one as well.

"Painting of girl's face" satisfies the marketing executive's recommendation of more "paintings of people" and satisfies the curator's recommendation of more "twenty-first-century paintings".

"painting of fish" satisfies the curator's recommendation of more "twenty-first-century century paintings".

"fish-shaped vase" satisfies the marketing executive's recommendation of more "jades".

"Abstract sequence" satisfies the marketing executive's recommendation of more "ceramics" and satisfies the curator's recommendation of more "abstract sculptures" and of more "twenty-first-century paintings".

"jagged sculpture" satisfies the curator's recommendation of more "abstract sculptures" and of more "twenty-first-century paintings".

Thus, we are must choose "Painting of girl's face" and "Abstract sequence".
