Museum Challenged People To Recreate Famous Paintings In Their Homes (30 Pics)

In addition to the challenges, the Getty hall is available for virtual tours through Google Arts & Culture

If you need something a little mild and subtle to divert your attention a few moments from the COVID-19 outbreak, you can't really ask for a better one.

A short while ago, inspired by the Dutch Instagram account Tussen Kunst en Quarantaine, the J. Paul Getty Museum challenged people to recreate famous art pieces using the objects they have in their homes and received some hilarious results. Well, turns out that this wasn’t just a one-time thing!

Some countries around the world have urged citizens to stay indoors and forget direct human contact unless necessary. The J. Paul Getty Museum, which might have properly seen its moment to appreciate art, challenged the internet to re-create famous works of art with three objects in their homes. And since most of the world is trapped indoors with absolutely nothing more to do, they rise to the occasion.

Getty has reposted the most promising images for your perusal, so if you need laughter (I won't blame you) and see the ingenuity of people who are really bored, then check Twitter.

In addition to the challenges, the Getty hall is available for virtual tours through Google Arts & Culture, meaning you can see artwork (not household items) displayed from the comfort of your home if the recreation doesn't suit your taste.

People are continuing to recreate famous artwork to this day and the results are as entertaining as ever.

Check out and see some of the funniest ones in the gallery below!
