How To Recognise Famous Painters According To The Internet

Art history has never been so easy! Reddit user DontTacoBoutIt  posted a series of famous paintings and gave short but hilariously accurate explanations on how to recognize their authors. According to him, Da Vinci’s works can be recognized by the bluish mist and locations reminiscent of Lord of The Rings movies, while Rubens’paintings can be identified by the figures’ large behinds.

Though some may fault them for being gross over-generalizations, these descriptions take the recognizable essence of each painter’s work and put it in very easy words that anyone can understand and, more importantly, remember.

But even more exciting is that commenters on Reddit and Imgur started sharing their own ideas for artist identification. It seems like they won’t stop until every artist in the world is explained. 

  1. If everyone is beautiful, naked, and stacked, it’s Michelangelo.
  2. If everyone in the paintings has enormous asses, then it’s Rubens.
  3. If the images have a dark background and everyone has tortured expressions on their faces, it’s Titian.
  4. If everything is highly-contrasted and sharp, sort of bluish, and everyone has gaunt bearded faces, it’s El Greco.
  5. Dappled light and happy party-time people, it’s Renoir.
  6. If everybody has some sort of body malfunction, then it’s Picasso.
  7. it’s If the painting could easily have a few chubby Cupids or sheep added (or already has them), it’s Boucher.
  8. lIf you see a ballerina, it’s Degas.
  9. If you see a ballerina, it’s Degas.If it’s something you saw on your acid trip last night, it’s Dali.
  10. If every painting is the face of a uni-browed woman, it’s Frida.

9 days for Mary - Today I start honoring Mama Mary by sharing my personal Marian images and the stories behind them.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help would be the first Mama Mary I knew. I remember as a kid, when I was still sleeping with my parents in their room, there was a huge image of the Perpetual Help by the door. The same Marian image is also present in our village chapel.

My mom told me that she prayed to Mama Mary when she was pregnant with me. My mom had a delicate pregnancy with me and I know, Our Lady watched over her and I during those times until now. #SalamatMaria!
