Can YOU Tell Which is a Kid's Scrawl and Which is Art?

Which is a child's and which is the adult artist's work?
How often have you heard someone say about a piece of art that their kid or a monkey could have done that? Well, researchers at Boston College decided to put those disparaging remarks to the test and challenged the regular, every day person to see the difference. They had people look at images done by abstract expressionists such as Mark Rothko, Clifford Styl and others against children's and animal's doodles. The result? The majority of people actually COULD tell the difference. Could I? Yes, I picked it out immediately. To see if YOU pick up on the difference go to the article in Canada's Globe and Mail.
