The most hilarious artworks
People create art to express themselves. A person’s skills, imagination, and emotions are the foundation of his/her artworks. A person who is interested in the field of arts has a greater understanding of the amount of emotion that an artwork can captivate. To capture the feelings of people during the early times, people have used various forms of art. It is not easy to portray one’s feelings and imagination into a piece of artwork, but oftentimes those who succeed are destined for recognition that lasts throughout ages. A work of art can also become a laughing material because of the image that the artist tried to portray. Laughing at a piece of artwork can really occur, most especially if that is what the artist intended to do. Keep reading below if you do not want to miss out on the most hilarious works of art.
The Experts (1837)
Before people had access to comical materials, like Joke of the Day calendars, people have given their laughs to artworks who have hidden witty meanings created by famous artists. One of these paintings is the “The Experts” created by Alexandre Decamps whose unconventional artworks have been rejected repeatedly for by the French Academy of Painting. The “The Experts” represents the obsession of art snobs to a painting that is conventionally styled, and the best part is that these art snobs were depicted by monkeys.
The Flatterers (1592)
During the 16th century, when odd and abstract artworks were famous, the “The Flatterers” was born. Painted by Pieter Brueghel, this painting depicts a situation wherein show-offs try to impress their superiors in a very obsequious manner.
Joseph Ducreux, 1793
Joseph Ducreux’s self-portrait is known for its Archaic Rap meme status and its pop culture vibes. The painting shows Joseph Ducreux slyly pointing towards the front while wearing a top hat and holding a cane.
Paintings of Children, 1888
If we were to talk about moody and mysterious paintings, then Vincent Van Gogh must be first on the list. However, he was not always inclined to this tone. Vincent Van Gogh, with his classic style, is also fond of painting children. “Paintings of Children”, also known as “Babies by Van Gogh”, is a series of oil paintings showing children. He did not intend to make it look funny but in some way people find it hilarious.
While there are paintings that were intentionally made to be funny, there are still numerous ones that only became hilarious once introduced in the modern scene. But nonetheless, we all have our different opinions and views, so what may be hilarious for one may not be true to all.
