140 Of The Funniest Classical Art Memes Shared On This Online Group (New Pics)

When you look at the works of the great masters like Rembrandt, Botticelli, Rubens, Holbein and a bunch of others, it seems like the reality portrayed there couldn’t be further from today.

Things like rabbit hunting, an afternoon tea in a busy salon, rocking full armor in historical combat, and pottery wheel throwing are now replaced by UberEats, Meta-connecting with friends (Facebook, what are you up to now?), treating yourself with a fancy avocado toast on a so-called healthy evening, and even fancier margaritas on the indulgent nights.

But creative people on the Reddit community ‘Tripping Through Time’ have found a way to make these classical paintings not just relevant, but basically translate them into the language of our times. How? By making memes!

So scroll down through the hilarious list of memes that transgress time and give us some universal and lasting things to cringe at! Psst! After you’re done, check out more art history memes here and here, and don’t be greedy, share the link with that friend who drinks their tea from a cup with Mona Lisa.
