L.A.’s Getty Museum Encouraged People To Recreate Famous Artworks And They’re Commendable AF

The imagination knows no bounds.

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles challenged its Twitter followers to recreate the famous artworks in their catalogue with three things lying around their house. Now, some participants didn’t stick to the limit, but considering the times we’re living in, we’re not going to be sticklers. Besides, some of these could be art in and of themselves. But I’m no art critic.

The Getty Museum has made their collection available online so that you may seek inspiration for your own masterpiece. Maybe you want to try your hand at something Greek or Roman, or travel through the centuries and visit the Middle Ages before returning to the present day. Otherwise, scroll through and take inspiration from your contemporaries.

1. How many other parents are feeling this image?

2. Sad, and yet so relatable.

 3. How we all should’ve been greeting each other months ago.

4. A meal fit for a man at home alone.

5. If you squint, you can see the resemblance.

 6. Just as Picasso’s young ladies do no represent real women, neither does Barbie.

 7. ”Such is life” — Last words of Ned Kelly, Australian bushranger.

 8. Good artists copy, great artists steal (and reinvent).

 9. “See, told you I could do it as well.”

 10. We hope they used this toilet paper afterwards! There’s a shortage, you know!

11. And in the midst of dark times, beauty still shines.
