Most hilarious artworks in the world
Creating art is a form of self-expression. Art is the product of honing the skills, imagination, and emotions of a person. Anybody who is engrossed in arts is potentially more appreciative of the emotions charmed by an artwork. In the past, when civilization was on its early stages, people have used different expressions of art to captivate feelings. Those artists who have successfully portrayed a moment in time are often guaranteed a life-long recognition, ore even more. Sometimes, artworks can also be hilarious that you just can’t help but laugh. If that was what the artist really tried to do (to make it look hilarious), then a laughing situation is inevitable. To be aware to some of these hilarious artworks, continue to read below.
The Experts, 1837
There are artists who placed hidden witty commentaries on their artwork and a lot of people find this hilarious especially that time before Joke of the Day calendars were released. “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 16th century was famous for producing odd and abstract paintings, and it is also during this time when the “The Flatterers” was created. 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. 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. 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. Vincent Van Gogh made a series of oil paintings portraying young children, and this is the “Paintings of Children” that we know today. The series of paintings was not intended to be hilariously looking but the viewers find it too funny.
When subjected in a modern context, there are paintings that became funny to look at even though its artist did not plan to make it look hilarious. However, each person have their own opinions and what we see may not be true to some.
