‘Ugly Renaissance Babies’ Tumblr Account Is Brutally Mocking Renaissance Painters, And It’s Hilarious

The Renaissance is often perceived as the period of the noblest traditions, but some artists from that time had been repeatedly doing something that looks somewhat sinister nowadays – they painted children like mini versions of old men. Tumblr account ‘Ugly Renaissance Babies’ is doing exactly what its name suggests – collecting the ugliest baby artworks from the said era, hilariously proving that some painters probably had never laid their eyes on an infant.

From rock-hard abs to getting stoned like a gravel road, these little fellas seem to be hitting puberty a lot faster than we did. Scroll down to poke some fun at the images, er, I mean, learn some art history and vote for your favorite entries!
