Who is Pablo Picasso?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The article in question appeared in the May 1910 edition of Architectural Record and was from a conversation between Picasso and American critic Gelett Burgess. Picasso’s women in the article were described as “ultramarine ogresses” and “monstrous, monolithic women, creatures like Alaskan totem poles, hacked out of solid, brutal colors, frightful, appalling!” The article is seen today as introducing French modern art to the United States, though it was seen as at least partly satirical.

    • This is the first time that the leader going into Final Jeopardy! has gotten Final Jeopardy! correct since December 26th, ending a record streak of 17 consecutive games where the leader did not.
    • During the 1500 regular-play games in the Obama administration, Jeopardy! gave away $30,351,473 to winners (including the 10 tie games before the November 2014 rule change).
    • Thanks to Jay Johnson for providing me with a full chart of this game.

    Neil upsall got credit for an incorrect answer which should hve been “What is the shot” not shot put which is the event and does not weigh aboutt as much as a bowling ball.

    • Andy Saunders | January 19, 2017 at 8:14 pm |

      While you are correct in that the item is the shot and the event is the shot put, Jeopardy usually does not neg extraneous information which is still correct (Similar to the fact that they do not rule a song title incorrect if the contestant adds extra correct song lyrics surrounding the title; “Baby You Can Drive My Car” is considered correct, as an example).

      I suspect that had he said “shot throw”, that would have been ruled incorrect.
