This post was written by Emma Welsh from Invaluable, an online art auction site with a lively blog. I really enjoyed their art memes and thought I’d share them with you. Hope you get a chuckle out of them!

It’s not hard to spot one of Michelangelo's famous paintings nor Leonardo da Vinci’s influential works of art. And while these acclaimed artists have surely made a lasting impression on the craft, sometimes it’s fun to reimagine their works in a modern context. Invaluable took some of the most amazing works of art from centuries past and recreated them as memes in a fun, satirical manner. See if you can relate to any and get a good laugh along the way!
