On Artists: My Rationale Explained

The most hilarious artworks

One of the ways to express ourselves is through crafting an artwork. Art is the product of honing the skills, imagination, and emotions of a person. A person who is interested in the field of arts has a greater understanding of the amount of emotion that an artwork can captivate.

A successful artist is one who creates a meaningful piece that can stand the test of time. A work of art can also become a laughing material because of the image that the artist tried to portray. Laughing at a piece of artwork can really occur, most especially if that is what the artist intended to do. If you want a good laugh, then continue to read below for some examples of the most hilarious artworks in the world.

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. One of these paintings is the “The Experts” created by Alexandre Decamps whose unconventional artworks have been rejected repeatedly for by 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)

“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. 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. He might be well-known for this style but apparently Vincent Van Gogh doesn’t always stick to 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. He did not intend to make it look funny but in some way people find it hilarious.

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. However, each person have their own opinions and what we see may not be true to some.
