Brilliant! The five questions I got were all intriguing.
Very nicely constructed.

There is a large variation in difficulty in the ones I got. I loved the concept. Some are googleable. Some are esoteric.

Four decades ago, my mom used a cream called "Esoterica." It bleached out age spots on the skin.

You're welcome.

To those of you who didn't get the Puzzle of Death, you are luckier people than I am.

I got mostly "esoteric" puzzles and it caused lentigines on my results.

Jank will understand without googling.

Still, kudos for a great word puzzle.

Gotta know which one was "the puzzle of death" - please tell us Ken when the WP is done.

Something about Seurat's Island of Jatte having 100,000 dots? Not a piece I'm familiar with, and had a bear of a time picking out the J.

Speaking of which, I bled like a hemophiliac on today's puzzle too.

The painting that led to Sondheim's Sunday in the park with George (one version in London's National Gallery?)
has the full title of something along the lines of 'Sunday afternoon on the island of la grande jatte'.

If you'd been dragged to as many art galleries as i was as a child it would be burnished on your brain.

MOMA had a great exhibit of his work about 18 months ago I think.

That was indeed the title. I've been to some museums, but never spent time in London. And I don't do Starbucks or coffee, so I'm totally out of my element with ordering a grande jatte. Maybe the next puzzle will be a more familiar topic for me/

All you have to do is go to the Art Institute of Chicago to see the original painting, Ken.

The Art Institute is awesome (and so is the Sondheim musical)
