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 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. 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’s self-portrait is known for its Archaic Rap meme status and its pop culture vibes. 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. Although he is famous for that style of art, that does not mean that he is consistent with this tone. Vincent Van Gogh, with his classic style, is also fond of painting children. Vincent Van Gogh made a series of oil paintings portraying young children, and this is the “Paintings of Children” that we know today. The series of paintings was not intended to be hilariously looking but the viewers find it too funny.
