30 Most Hilarious Classical Paintings With Modern Phrases That Are Too Good To Miss

This list might make you feel like you’re visiting the coolest art gallery in the world.

Let’s introduce you to the Classical Damn Instagram Page. It launched in 2019, to combine just two passions: art and memes. It’s filled with memes that comment on anything from current social issues to the absurdity of the paintings. The page has indeed been doing a great job, gaining a loyal following of over 340K and placing a hilarious modern take on classical pieces of art.

While meme culture was certainly not in place when these paintings were created, it’s amazing to see the fusion of both modern and classical takes on them. Most of these pieces of artwork [compiled below] were possibly just regular images meant to capture everyday life at the time they were made, hence it’s only natural to remark on them with modern equivalents of everyday problems or relatable situations.

According to J.T Lanci of the Veronais Art Blog, classical art is more relevant today than ever. He told Bored Panda: “In the modern world we are bombarded with messages about who we are or who we are supposed to be and classical art grounds us in our natural form. Moreover, the beauty of classical art has stood the test of time and inspires us to share our inner beauty with the world.” 

Lanci made it clear that classical art is for all to enjoy as he urged that no one should turn away from classical art with the impression that is snobby or pretentious. He insisted the great artists that created these works are reaching down through the centuries to speak directly to our innermost selves and that the messages are intended for us.
