The most hilarious artworks
People create art to express themselves. A person’s skills, imagination, and emotions are the foundation of his/her artworks. An artwork has the ability to capture the emotions of its audience, and so it takes a person who’s interested in arts to understand this. Even during the early ages, people have used many forms of art to convey a message and in turn gain the emotions of other people. 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. This is quite unavoidable at times especially if it truly is worth the laugh. If you want a good laugh, then continue to read below for some examples of the most hilarious artworks in the world.
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. “The Experts”, created by Alexandre Decamps, is one of these artworks and was made after the artist experienced repeated rejection from 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)
“The Flatterers” is made during the 16th century where it is generally filled by odd and abstract forms of expression. 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
This painting that exudes a pop culture vibe is a self-portrait of Joseph Ducreux and is primarily known for its meme status as Archaic Rap. In this painting is an image of Joseph Ducreux in an 18th century fashion while pointing slyly.
Paintings of Children, 1888
If we were to talk about moody and mysterious paintings, then Vincent Van Gogh must be first on the list. Although he is famous for that style of art, that does not mean that he is consistent with this tone. Vincent Van Gogh, with his classic style, is also fond of painting children. “Paintings of Children” is a series of oil paintings that was painted by Vincent Van Gogh while using children as his subjects. It was not Vincent Van Gogh’s intention to show a hilarious image but it somewhat struck the people hilariously.
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 still, each of us have a different view on things and what may be funny for you may not be funny for the rest.
