In the great wide world of image macros, it can sometimes seem like aesthetic standards are pretty low. When it comes down to it, just about anyone can rip an image off the first page of their search results and add a caption, right?
As a result, it can be nice to mix it up with some memes that use a little more attention to detail. No longer relegated to galleries and museums, art and paintings have proved to be one of the most eye-catching and flamboyant ways of getting across a relatable point. It's no surprise that they've managed to remain consistently popular, and new, humorous takes on classical pieces continue to arrive by the day. Sure, that guy in the 1600s may have been painting for wildly different reasons, but there's no harm in doing some repurposing. It goes to show that no matter what, art retains its relevance — even if it has to adapt a little to do so.
