One of the ways to express ourselves is through crafting an artwork. It is an incorporation of the creative skills, imagination and feelings of a human being. A person who is interested in the field of arts has a greater understanding of the amount of emotion that an artwork can captivate. 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. Those artists who have successfully portrayed a moment in time are often guaranteed a life-long recognition, ore even more. 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. 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. “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. This painting was painted by Pieter Brueghel in an attempt to portray pretentious people who try too hard to please their superiors.
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 in a top hat, holding a cane while pointing slyly towards its audience.
Paintings of Children, 1888
Vincent Van Gogh is known for his mysterious-looking and emotional paintings. However, he was not always inclined to this tone. Vincent Van Gogh has his own classic style and he uses this even when painting children. “Paintings of Children”, also known as “Babies by Van Gogh”, is a series of oil paintings showing children. It was not Vincent Van Gogh’s intention to show a hilarious image but it somewhat struck the people hilariously.
