A Funny But Accurate Guide To Find Out The Authenticity Of Famous Paintings

How to distinguish fake and original paintings? Surely this is very difficult for ordinary people who are not familiar with visual works. People who don't know fine arts especially rarely see paintings certainly can't distinguish and there must be authentic evidence and scientific testing by academics about the painting. But this process has only been achieved lately. Previously, if you wanted to prove fake or non-fake paintings, the easiest way is to ask the painter or his family.

There are several methods to test the authenticity of a painting. First, a visual test. Collectors and art lovers who buy them must see firsthand the colors and gestures of paintings. Second, look for evidence that the painting was indeed painted by the painter. This can be asked of painters and families who are still alive. It could be from family testimonies that his father had seen while painting or evidence in the form of photographs, etc. And the last method is forensic testing.

but there is the easiest and funniest way to find out whether this painting is genuine or not and what is surprisingly accurate. The helpful guide, created by Reddit user DontTacoBoutIt, will help you recognize famous painters by pointing out the distinctive style elements in their paintings – in a hilarious way. From the Putin-like characters of Van Eyck to the chubby cupids of Boucher, check out this funny art guide in the gallery below!
