There's something about classical art that just turns me off. Endless portraits of pale and plump aristocrats looking all fancy in the classical paintings, bucolic rural scenes, religious iconography... I can certainly appreciate the skill and relevance back in the pre-photography age, but these days we need a message!
Classical artwork and timeless masterpieces of the art world make tip-top templates for memes. The proof is in the pudding, and the Classical Sarcasm Instagram account is here to serve it. Classical Sarcasm is a social media project that is dedicated to sharing witty memes that use classical paintings that many of us know and love as templates.
