Artists 31-40

Dates can be learnt more easily if they are linked to a visual image such as the major memory system. Look back at Artists 1-10 to see how this is done. Note you have a key word like MAT which is your word hook. Mat is number 31 because M stands for three and T stands for 1. Now use your imagination to place the subject of the painting on a MAT so you can link it to number 31 in your list of 100 artists. Do the same with the word MAN and so on……..
