Art History Funnies

A charming exhibition of Miguel Rep is currently on view at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires. From Matisse preparing a hot dog to Picasso coming to terms with a woman in the flesh, Rep is a master of Art History 101 humor. Even when he verges on bad taste (poor Toulouse-Lautrec and his absurdly long brushes) Rep’s light touch keeps cruelty at bay. Life is too short to take anything too seriously and it was refreshing to have a giggle in this gallery.
