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. Anybody who is engrossed in arts is potentially more appreciative of the emotions charmed by an artwork. To capture the feelings of people during the early times, people have used various forms of art. 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. If that was what the artist really tried to do (to make it look hilarious), then a laughing situation is inevitable. Keep reading below if you do not want to miss out on the most hilarious works of art.
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. 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)
Joseph Ducreux’s self-portrait is known for its Archaic Rap meme status and its pop culture vibes. In this painting is an image of Joseph Ducreux in an 18th century fashion while pointing slyly.
Paintings of Children (1888)
Vincent Van Gogh, an artist known for his mysterious and emotional style of painting. Although he is famous for that style of art, that does not mean that he is consistent with this tone. Vincent Van Gogh has his own classic style and he uses this even when 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.
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.
