The most hilarious artworks
People create art to express themselves. 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. In the past, when civilization was on its early stages, people have used different expressions of art to captivate feelings. 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. 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
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. This painting represents the art snobs who have only been attracted to conventional styles of painting and are wittily represented 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. “The Flatterers” was painted by Pieter Brueghel in an intention to portray how people obsequiously try to satisfy 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
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. He also enjoyed painting children while using his classic style. “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. But nonetheless, we all have our different opinions and views, so what may be hilarious for one may not be true to all.
