Daily Question – 12

Today’s question comes partly from me and partly from Harish Narayanan, an ex-QFI regular and a card-carrying member of the Church Of Tarantino. His faith is so strong that he once set a full-length QFI quiz where almost every answer was ‘Kill Bill’ (one was ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 2’). He is now based in the United States, earning his daily bread from Microsoft, and has sent us this question from his iPhone.

Identify the paintings and the painters. And connect.

‘Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends’, the fourth album by Coldplay, is named after a painting by Frida Kahlo (Visual 1) and the cover artwork features the painting ‘Liberty Leading the People’ by Eugène Delacroix (Visual 2).

    Viva La Vida- Frida Kahlo

    Connect: That stupid album by that loser band fronted by that idiot who shares my first name.

  4. Viva la Vida by Frida Kahlo.. Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix.. Coldplay’s latest album has the artwork of the latter and the title of the first.

  5. Dear Uncle:

    The first painting is “Viva la Vida” by Frida Kahlo, that aunty with a moustache.

    The second painting is “Liberty leading the people” by Delacroix. Uncle, I can see her boobies in that!

    The connect is the recent Coldplay album, which takes its name from Moustache Aunty’s painting but wisely decides to put Booby Aunty on the cover instead.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun

    Coldplay – new album, ‘Viva La Vida’, takes its title from the Frida Kahlo painting of the same name – it is the water melon painting shown above.

    The album cover is basically the Delacroix painting ‘Liberty leading the people’ – which is also shown above.

  7. Thejaswi Udupa

    Coldplay’s new album ‘Viva la Vida’

    The album takes its name from the Frida Kahlo painting on top

    The album art is Delacroix’s famous ‘Liberty Leading the People’

  8. Kahlo’s Viva la Vida. Delacroix’s Liberty leading the masses. Coldplay’s album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends takes its name from the first and album cover is the second

  9. Viva la Vida … Frida Kahlo
    Liberty leading the People – Delacroix

    Connect – Coldplay – New album

  10. The first painting is Kahlo´s ´Viva la Vida´ censored with a strange black rectangle. The second is Delacroix uncensored and his awesome Liberty Leading the People with a healthy dose of exposed breast.

    I kind of feel nice that I did not know the connection, but was informed by the well meaning internet that this is the manner in which Chris Martin now unleashes his intellectuality upon us (album title and cover art). So, keeping with the now ubiquitous sneering tone with which all Coldplay albums seem to demand being addressed in the media, I humbly submit my answer.

    The album cover has viva la vida (inspired by frida) etched onto the delacroix painting of liberty.

  16. The cover of Coldplay’s latest album is inspired by Delacroix’s “Liberty leading the Way” while the title of the album, “Viva La Vida” is derived from a Frida kahlo painting of the same name
