Artists 41 -50

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 RAT which is your word hook. Rat is number 41 because R stands for 4 and T stands for 1. Now use your imagination to place a RAT in the painting so you can link it to number 41 in your list of 100 artists. Do the same with the word RAIN and so on……..
