Google Doodles Inspired by Fine Artists

 Google logo based on the work of Alphonse Mucha

Google periodically changes the logo on their search page to reflect an important event, anniversary, or birthday.  The project, called Google Doodle, is often inspired by fine artists. Below is a selection of some of the logos inspired by artists and their artwork.

Left Column: Magritte, Cassatt, Pollock, Monet, Dali
Right Column: Munk√°csy, Repin, Miro, Cezanne, Sorolla

If you would like to see more of these logos, you can visit the Google Doodles archive.

Update: Artists, I received a great question in the comments and I would love to hear your answer: If you were to design a logo based on your work, what would it look like?


  1. if you had to design one based on your art, what painting would you pick?

  2. Thanks for the great question. :) I don't think that I would pick one image but come up with a theme based on whats similar between the pieces. I would like the letters to look aged/weathered like they are crumbling into the ground and blending in with the environment. In the foreground, I would add some small pebbles and subtle weeds.
