The Great British Art Tour quiz: a 17th-century selfie, a scallop and a small dog

Each of these works, and the answers to our questions, has featured in our series that explored highlights from public collections across the country while art galleries and museums were closed. You can read the four-month series here, produced in collaboration with Art UK, which brings the nation’s art together on one digital platform and tells the stories behind the art. If you spot any mistakes, or want to give us feedback – good or bad – please get in touch.
