Why Artists Aren’t As Bad As You Think

Most hilarious artworks in the world

People create art to express themselves. A person’s skills, imagination, and emotions are the foundation of his/her artworks. 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. A successful artist is one who creates a meaningful piece that can stand the test of time. There are times that when you see a work of art you just can’t stop yourself from laughing. 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)

People had a good laugh with hidden witty meanings behind famous works of art before they knew Joke of the Day calendars and many more other comical materials. “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 Experts” was made to depict various art snobs (represented by monkeys) who are obsessed with a more conventional painting.

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

“Joseph Ducreux” is a self-portrait that is famous for its Archaic Rap meme status and coincidentally, it exudes vibes that of the pop culture. 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. 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.

A lot of famous paintings were not intended to be comical-looking, but when introduced in the modern context it became famous to more people making it open to a greater amount of interpretations. 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.
