This Tumblr Spots All The Ugly Babies In Renaissance Paintings, And It’s Hilarious

During Renaissance art flourished, especially in the form of paintings and sculptures. Art during this period was influenced by the philosophical view of Humanism, characterized by consequent attention to detail, and the increasing realism of human faces and bodies.
Having said all these, we can’t help but doubt the intricacies of their work because of one particular thing, the way they painted babies. All these baby paintings just seem to oppose the whole idea of realism, because they look like they’ve been painted by a person who had never seen babies before, and decided to paint them like tiny old men.
Scroll through the following hilarious collection of ugly Renaissance babies and head on to this designated Tumblr page for more.
