Kinda think I should get either one or three; IQ1 was Michael Faraday, IQ2 was Fra Angelico, and IQ3 was Fra Lippo Lippi. I leave it to the consensus of the community if Fra Angelico and Fra Lippo Lippo count as “F” names, since “Fra” is a title rather than a name, a point that had not occurred to me when I posted the IQs. But, that’s how they’re known. In the meantime, I’ll reserve the DQs in question, and ask just one:

DQ: Italian?

I think you should get three. "Fra" is indeed how they're known to English speakers like us. It would be roughly analogous to a question about Mahatma Gandhi or the Dalai Lama.

Previous IQs:

Were you RNC Chair in the 1980s? - Frank Fahrenkopf
Were you known for your paintings of the Spanish royal court? - Yes, Francisco Goya
Did you costar in $ky Hei$t? - Frank Gorshin

DQ:

Best known for religious art?
Best known for a single painting?
