The Experts (1837)

One of these paintings is the “The Experts” created by Alexandre Decamps whose unconventional artworks have been rejected repeatedly for by the French Academy of Painting. “The Experts” was made to depict various art snobs (represented by monkeys) who are obsessed with a more conventional painting.
The Flatterers, 1592
The 16th century was famous for producing odd and abstract paintings, and it is also during this time when the “The Flatterers” was created. This painting was painted by Pieter Brueghel in an attempt to portray pretentious people who try too hard to please their superiors.
Joseph Ducreux, 1793

Paintings of Children (1888)
