A subreddit to collect and dissect the more startling musings and dissertations of redditors (and other net denizens) on the subject of art and art history.


This subreddit stands against hate speech


This is a subreddit to collect and dissect the more startling musings and dissertations of redditors (and other net denizens) on the subject of art and art history. It is not expected to be particularly active, because people who studied art or art history are all unemployed self-delusional hipsters and no one has even made a real painting since 1907.


Rule of Firsts: Do not vote in linked threads.

Rule of Seconds: Explain why bad art history is bad.

Rule of Thirds: Use .np links or screenshots if possible. Or don't, .np doesn't actually do anything.

Rule of Thirds II: Beyond Thirderdome: Be excellent to each other

Artists / Institutions are really goofing in the #claudecahun tag on Instagram

This is a photo by Gillian Wearing, \"Me as Cahun Holding a Mask of My Face\", from her series \"Behind the Mask, Another Mask\", shown at the National Portrait Gallery in DC. She did the exhibition alongside Claude Cahun's work. Most of the top images in Cahun's instagram tag are THIS IMAGE. Even by actual art institutions. I can't help but laugh.
